The South Station subway and busway station is located beneath the rail station of the same name and was recently rebuilt to incorporate the Silverline Waterfront Busway Subway Station situated above the rail platforms. These platforms have a simple layout with the subway platforms located as side platforms beneath the bus platforms. Both lines have side platforms and buses drop-off there passengers before reversing and looping beyond the station, to pick up new ones. The station has one central mezzanine area where exits lead to both directly within South Station and also to surrounding streets. From the central mezzanine staircases/up escalators lead down to a level alongside the silver line platforms where more escalators/staircases lead out perpendicular to each of the red line platforms down below. The platforms all have modern grey tiling except for a few old name tablets saying South Station Under with white text on blue on the red line platform. Along each of the red line platforms there is also a high exit only turnstiles that leads to an up escalator and staircase directly to the mezzanine level.
