|What is this insanity?!|

Ridership: Sadly, this is not a particularly well-used stop, with only 1,136 riders per weekday, slotting it at sixth-worst for the B. So...why is this the stop that gets all the amenities?
Pros: Yes, as I mentioned, there are proper amenities here, and Boston College feels like an actual, true station. It actually has benches under shelters!
Cons: There are three main problems with this station: the deboarding process is inconsistent, with two separate platforms; the multileveled inbound platform feels more complicated than it needs to be; and it can only board one car.
Nearby and Noteworthy: There's a little business block next to the station with restaurants, and of course, it's right near the sprawling Boston College campus.
Final Verdict: 6/10
And thus, we've reached the unsatisfying end of a rather unsatisfying adventure. The B Line is...terrible. And most of its stations are terrible. There's definitely a lot of work that needs to be done to make this line wheelchair accessible, let alone...y'know, good. So hopefully, improvements are in the future for the most hated line in Boston. Stay tuned for "The B Line: Exposed", coming out tomorrow!
