Boston University-area Green Line stops (B branch)

Alrighty, so now that we got the absolute worst of the worst on the MBTA out of the way, let’s look at some half-decent stations, shall we? Now, the BU-area stations. These stations, namely, are Babcock Street, Amory Street, BU Central, BU East, and Blandford Street. Buckle down, as I walked the entirity of this segment of the Green Line for these reviews.

Hehe, Babcock…..

Alrighty, so these all are pretty much copy-paste, hence the 5-in-1 deal of a review. They all have shelters, wastebaskets, benches(!!!), and even countdown clocks and announcements. DAMN!!! The other stops make these look like Back Bay copy-pastes in comparison! Now, there’s also not much, and these are the last stops of the B branch before the central mainline at Kenmore. Oh yeah, the 57 runs down here too. Neat.

See ya!
Looking up towards HELL!
See ya again!
Amory Street!
BU Central!
A mini-high???
The platform at BU East
And the helvetica!
The last stop – Blandford St.!
Please, no more!
Under the ground!

The good: There’s shelters, benches, and a countdown clock! Yay, the bare basics are here!!! WOOHOO!!!!! They also serve the areas in/around BU!

The bad: Eh, vs. the other stations not a lot is wrong here. I guess my biggest complaint is Blandford’s inaccessibility, and the mini-high at BU Central. That’s a weird thing. Also, good luck with crossing US-20.

Nearby points of interest: BU is the big one. If you’re a railfan, you can also easily reach the Grand Junction from these stops as well. I’d recommend Amory St. in particular, for the CP3.3 switch

Transit connections:
Green Line (B)
MBTA bus (57)

Overall, yeah these are relatively great stations. However, in the grand scheme of the MBTA, they’re average at best. Yeah, sorry but not sorry.
