Porter Square Subway Station Stairs

David Booth

The Porter Square station has two long escalators, but sometimes I take the adjacent stairs for exercise.  There are a lot of them!  I decided to count them.  There are three sets of stairs: two main sets get you down to the Inbound level, and a third set that goes down to the Outbound level.  The counts:

Upper set, from street to entry gates and commuter line 60
Middle set, from entry gates to Inbound level 117
Lower set, from Inbound level to Outbound level 22
Total 199
