Ridership: This is one of the least-used stations on the Commuter Rail. Are you ready for this? 30 inbound riders per weekday. That's it.
Pros: Well, as a station, it's fine. You know, it's your typical Old Colony platform, and the station is right by the water, which is nice. There's also more than enough parking - like I said, three times the ridership!
Cons: Quite frankly, trains should just stop serving this station, because it's not helping anyone to send them out here. Okay, it's helping 30 people, but that's not a lot of people. The thing is, having trains come out here adds a lot of time to train schedules and to commuters, and for what? So that a few people can get off at a station that shaves off a few minutes of driving time for them? No, I'm sorry, I just don't see the point.
Nearby and Noteworthy: Oh, you know, one of the oldest settlements in the entire country...if you're willing to walk 45 minutes, that is! At least there's always the GATRA to take you there.
Final Verdict: 2/10
Okay, Plymouth as a station is fine. It's typical. It's normal. Whatever. But come on, does it really need to exist? No, no it doesn't. Deviating trains here takes so much time, and it's helping so few people per day. Yes, as a station it's fine...but it shouldn't have been built in the first place.
