Boylston is one of the two original subway stations in North America opening in 1897 with the Tremont Street Subway. The stop presently has two open tracks with at two more outside tracks abandoned that used to lead to other entrances to the subway for streetcars. There are two separate platforms each is an island with a fenced off track to one side. On the fenced off track (beyond the fencing) on the inbound side PCC car #3295 is on display, along with Type-5 car #5734 from the World War I era. Each platform (which are offset from each other) has a single entrance with one set of faregates at one end that each lead up to a staircase in separate enclosed stone enclosures along the SE corner of the Boston Common with the inbound directly at the NW corner of Boylston St and Tremont Street.
