During the year 2006, the station has seen some changes. The new fare collection systems were installed to support the new
Charlie Ticket. Also, the former people moverconnecting the main station lobby to the Station Landing parking garage was demolished and an above-ground walkway, named the SkyWalk, was opened in March, 2007. The reason for the MBTA's upgrade of the connector is due to the anticipated influx in traffic between the garage and station because of the new development at Station Landing which includes two six-story apartment buildings, a twelve-story condominium complex, a large office building, and retail and dining establishments including Starbucks, Walgreens, H&R Block, Not Your Average Joe's, T-Mobileretail outlet, and Boston Sports Club.
