Has the interior passageway to the commuter rail area been opened?

There really isn't such a passageway. There is a pedestrian tunnel leading to a new headhouse on the north side of Causeway, but the tunnel isn't yet open because the headhouse is under construction. Even after it opens, you will still need to walk outside for a bit between the headhouse and the FleetCenter east entrance.

A true indoor connection will have to wait until something is built on the big empty lot in front of the FleetCenter (the former Boston Garden site).

Any structure built where the old Garden was is _supposed_ to include an expanded North Station lobby on the first floor. Who knows if that will actually happen.

Well I got to ride the green line into the new "superstation". It was okay... I wasn't really impressed. Maybe because it's everything I expected. The connection is a hell of a lot easier now though, I must say.
