Packards Corner (announced as Brighton Avenue/Packards Corner) is a station on the MBTA's Green Line "B" Branch located at Packard's Corner - the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Brighton Avenue - in Allston, Boston, Massachusetts. The station is located in a median between the westbound through and parking lanes of Commonwealth Avenue.

History

The Green Line "A" Branch formerly diverged just north of the platforms; its trolleys stopped at a separate Packards Corner stop at Malvern Road. The "A" Branch was closed on June 21, 1969, though it was kept intact for non-revenue moves to Watertown Yard. The line was finally abandoned in 1994; a several-hundred-foot stub track was left until the mid-2000s to temporarily store disabled trains. The switch and the last few feet of track were not disconnected until track work in 2014.
