Ridership: Oh dear, not much at all...Kendal Green only gets 162 inbound riders per weekday. It's the fourth least-used station on the Fitchburg Line.
Pros: This station definitely has charm to it, especially with that building. Its amenities are fine considering its ridership, and the free parking is nice, as well as the bike rack. Finally, I like the way this station is scheduled - outside of the peak, it's always a flag stop. This is a good way of letting people get on if they're there, but not having to hinder other passengers on the train if the platform is empty.
Cons: It's just a very basic station. The platform is tiny, and there isn't even one on the inbound side! That being said, I guess it does match the ridership.
Nearby and Noteworthy: No, the surrounding area is basically all houses. It's only a mile to the closest 70 stop, though!
Final Verdict: 5/10
I dunno, it's just...Kendal Green. I certainly see its charm, and it has a good amount of it, but the lack of an inbound platform is really bad. Even then, giving this a 6 would mean it's better than Concord, which it most certainly isn't. Kendal Green does its job fine, but it definitely has its fare share of problems.
