Ridership: For the Lowell Line, it's the third least-used station. But it's the Lowell Line, so that's not saying much! Yes, 544 inbound riders per weekday is still a perfectly good number for the Commuter Rail.
Pros: This station offers a lot of modern amenities, including good mini-high platforms, a decent bus facility, and some convenient TOD apartments. I like in particular how a large part of the inbound platform is sheltered, making for a more comfortable waiting experience - even if the mini-high is full, people can still be sheltered and close to it.
Cons: Parking is rather lacking here, and it could theoretically be expanded into one of the nearby industrial lots around here. Also, that alarm when trains come in is really annoying, but for the sake of safety, I shall let it slide!
Nearby and Noteworthy: This station is technically in "downtown" Wilmington, but it's borrrrrring! There are some shopping plazas about a 15 minutes walk up Main Street, but it's not like you'll find anything unique there.
Final Verdict: 8/10
Purely as a waiting experience, Wilmington is spot-on. Whether it's the bus or the train, you've got some great facilities here for Commuter Rail standards to wait at. Of course, if you're trying to park here...well, let's just say I recommend you arrive a little early.
