World Trade Center is the last underground Silverline Station in its transitway and just east of the stop the line rises up to street level but the trolley wire and private ROW continues to Silver Line way two blocks west. The entrance to the bus tunnel has more than just signs say Do Not Enter Buses Except but barrier arms that rise up to let only buses through like at a parking garage. An employee seems to be stationed there to make sure electric mode is operating properly on all buses. SL1 Logan Airport buses basically serve the station twice, first stopping outside the station (at their only stop not in the transitway), drop off only inbound, before looping down Congress Street to Silver Line Way, stopping there, rising the buses' trolley wire, entering electric mode and running into the transitway. The station itself has two side platforms (an island would require the dual-mode trolley buses to have left-hand doors which they do not have) The stops proximity to the suraface is quite visible with daylight pouring in from the ends of the platforms as well as windows in the sides of the stations roof. For access stairs/up escalators and an elevator leads up from the inbound western end of the platforms to a small overpass level where fare control is, this in turn leads to a passageway to doors out to Congress Street and escalators up to the Boston World Trade Center.
