Ridership: Do we have to talk about the ridership? This station is so awesome until we bring up the ridership. Sigh. It's the second least used station on the subway system (excluding streetcar stops), with only 945 weekday boardings. But the station's so nice...
Pros: Okay, this thing is beautiful. It really is. Like, this is probably worth seeing even if you're not taking the bus. But you'll probably see it if you decide to take public transportation to the ICA, because this station has a pretty good location.
Cons: The ridership is disappointingly small, but I think there's a way to improve it somewhat...
Nearby and Noteworthy: The ICA is a pretty popular place and a great museum. I feel like this station could get more ridership if the MBTA added a "/ICA" to it.
Final Verdict: 7/10
It's a beautiful station. And yes, that shouldn't be the sole reason to like a station, but it's really beautiful. And the location's nice. You've got those apartment blocks, the newly developed buildings, the ICA, and of course, the courthouse. But the ridership is frustratingly low, and I think if the MBTA made it more obvious that this station is close to the ICA it could help.
