Morton Street is a commuter rail station located in South Boston on the extremely short Fairmont Line. The stop was recently renovated and made ADA compliant with two high-level side platforms for the two-track line. There are not connected except by the overpass of their namesake street at their northern end. The outbound platform is accessed by a long ramp down from this overpass to its northern end as well as from Flint Street that dead-ends into it. The inbound is accessed from a staircase down form this overpass and a small car loop with a tiny parking lot (it loops around and crosses Morton Street at its intersection with Evans Street). The ramp down to the outbound platform makes the platforms offset from each other. Each platform has a canopied area (for about two cars) at its northern end at the entrances
