A recent study shows that connecting North and South Station by tunnel would cost at least $12 billion, possibly as high as $21.5 billion, depending on the number of tracks. This proposal is in competition with the idea of an expansion of South Station to increase train service to the south and west, which would cost only $4.7 billion.
The $12 billion connection between North and South Station would increase commuter rail ridership to about 225,000, whereas the $4.7 billion South Station enhancements would increase ridership to about 195,000. Read more in the Boston Globe.
