Ridership: Haverhill's ridership is pretty average for the Commuter Rail, with about 575 riders per weekday. I feel like these mostly come from local residents - I can't imagine anyone reverse-commuting out here. Some passengers may come from MVRTA buses, too.
Pros: The platform is fantastic - there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. This station offers a good amount of parking, both from the MBTA lot and the big garage. There are also MVRTA bus connections here - the buses leave from a terminal a few blocks down Washington Street. I'll take a look at that in another post.
Cons: Hmm...well, it would be nice if the MBTA acknowledged the big MVRTA garage on its website, but nothing much, other than that.
Nearby and Noteworthy: Downtown Haverhill may not be the most interesting of places, but it does have some restaurants and businesses lined up along Washington Street.
Final Verdict: 9/10
Haverhill is another great Commuter Rail terminal. I think it takes much less to impress me when it comes to Commuter Rail stations, but whatever. Haverhill has a great platform with awesome architecture and a bunch of parking in two different lots. For a Commuter Rail station, this is top notch.
