|A train at the station.|
Ridership: This is a key station on the C, although admittedly the least-used of the four - it's slightly below average for Green Line stations overall. It gets an average of 1,091 riders per weekday.
Pros: The station itself is great, with typical wide platforms and normal shelters. The other amenities add a lot, too, such as the bike parking and (most of all) the clock. There's also a bus connection here with the 65 - the stops aren't much, but it's not like the 65 is a busy route.
Cons: Weirdly, the level crossing on one side of the station is completely inaccessible - one side of it has a step to the platform, while the other side doesn't meet the platform at all!
Nearby and Noteworthy: Washington Square has many businesses and restaurants around the station.
Final Verdict: 8/10
I'd put this station on the same level as Saint Marys Street. Their platforms are essentially equivalent, but while Saint Marys Street got an 8 because of lack of character, Washington Square gets an 8 because of the weird inaccessible crossing. There's definitely a lot of character here, though.
