Broadway is an MBTA red line subway station with an island platform and nicely tiled walls, with regularly spaced tiled pillars along the platform edges. The stops original mosaics have all been replaced or covered up with the exception of one saying Broadway still on the wall of each track right near the station entrance. There is also a collaborative art project consisting of tiles along the pillars and 'Domestic Objects and Tools of the Trade' by Jay Coocan, 1988. The stop has a single exit at its northern end where a staircase, up escalator and elevator lead to a narrow mezzanine area beneath the street where the faregates are. From here there are two exits one is just a staircase in the median of Traveler Street just before its bridge over a small stub of the Harbor, the other is to the SE corner of Dorchester Avenue and Broadway that has a staircase/up escalator and the street elevator.
