Ridership: I'm gonna go outright and say it, this is one of the least-used stations on the Commuter Rail. It only gets 117 inbound riders per weekday, who I assume are mostly locals. It's interesting how both of Belmont's stations get low ridership, with Belmont Center only getting 168 inbound riders per weekday.
Pros: Well, it has bike and street parking, which is good. Um...there are bus connections?
Cons: Firstly, it's not wheelchair-accessible. It would admittedly be hard to make Waverley accessible, but the point stands that it's not. Oh, also: saaaaaaaalmooooon. It's ugly.
Nearby and Noteworthy: Aside from some businesses in the station's immediate vicinity, there isn't much around Waverley.
Final Verdict: 4/10
I would say this station's on the same level as Belmont Center. They're both not accessible, though Waverley has some form of parking while Belmont Center doesn't. That said, Belmont has an awesome old station building, whereas Waverley has...salmon. I rest my case.
