Supporters of the new stop said the purpose is to increase rail transit access, promote transit ridership and provide safer access to the rapid development in the South End area.

The first two years of the project would be funded by funds allocated to CATS, according to the proposal.

Future construction funding will be provided through a combination of public and private funds.

The organization will vote next month on whether to move forward with the possible light rail stop.
