Ridership: This is another one of the least-used stations on the Green Line (although only fifth-worst on the C), with an average of 444 riders per weekday.
Pros: Like Brandon Hall, this is a very pretty stop that's also functional. It has its shelter on the correct platform, while the flower ribbon adds a nice bit of character.
Cons: Another similarity to Brandon Hall is this station's close proximity to its neighbors. To be honest, Fairbanks Street and Brandon Hall could probably be consolidated into one stop and it wouldn't matter much.
Nearby and Noteworthy: Lots o' apartments. Yeah,
Final Verdict: 9/10
I would argue that Fairbanks Street is slightly better than Brandon Hall, if only because I love that flower ribbon. However, I still wouldn't consider Fairbanks to be good enough for a 10, since its platform is iffy in terms of its condition, like most of the C. Still...great station.
