Eliot (Green Line)

Alrighty, Eliot, this one’s for you!


So, Eliot isn’t exactly known for being around much. At the station itself, you have some parking (oh my, another park & ride), your usual heated glass shelter, and accessible boarding. There’s also a bike rack on the outbound side (why???), with access from local streets. You’ve also got access from MA-9, but why would you want to cross a wannabe freeway???? Just, why?

Looking towards Riverside!

The good: It’s got lots of local access from the immediate area. Plus, the usual pluses of the D branch with heated waiting areas.

The bad: The nearby highway kills it. Also, there’s no accessible boarding – DESPITE THE SIGNS DESIGNATING ACCESSIBLE ENTRANCES/EXITS. WHY, HOW, WHY?! WHO THE FUCK IS GOING TO WALK UP/DOWN THE RAMP ON ROUTE 9?!

Nearby points of interest: Not a lot over here.

Transit connections:
Green Line (D)

Overall, this station actually kinda sucks. No accessible boarding and it’s right next to a highway, it’s gonna be pretty bad overall. Ugh.

Rating: 5.5/10
