|A train rounding the curve!|
Ridership: Babcock Street has pretty average ridership, with 1,387 riders per weekday. Packards Corner, on the other hand, is one of the busiest stations on the Green Line! It gets 2,654 riders per weekday, and boasts the second-highest ridership on the B and the ninth-highest ridership for the Green Line branches.
Pros: Well, there's a shelter on both inbound sides. That's...nice. Packards Corner has a somewhat decently-sized barrier on its inbound platform.
Cons: Basically the same problems as before. These stations still don't have benches under their shelters, and the platforms are in terrible condition.
Nearby and Noteworthy: There are a few final outposts of Boston University near here, but by this point, Comm Ave is mostly dominated by businesses and apartments. Also, check out the A Line stub at Packards Corner if you're interested!
Final Verdict: 3/10
Meh. These stations aren't at all noteworthy by themselves, aside from the stub at Packards Corner. The B Line still has no idea where to put its benches at stations, so sheltered seating is still out of the question. So yeah...nothing to see here.
