Newton Highlands (Green Line)

Alrighty, so now onto the Green Line’s Newton duo! First up, batting, is Newton Highlands.

The usuals!

So, on the inbound side you’ve got the same usual stuff, shelters, with one being heated. The station’s accessible as well, which is nice!


On the other side, you got some seating (though not a lot), an old building housing a dentistry practice, and accessible entry to the station. Also, WHY IS THERE A TEAL SIGN?! THIS IS THE GREEN LINE, NOT THE TEAL LINE!!! -1 for that alone! (jkjk)

The accessible entrance!
Wheelchair lift!
Looking the other way!
And towards Riverside!

The good: You got a small village nearby! Furthermore, the 59 stops here! Neat, as most other stations either get the MWRTA, or nothing at all! Otherwise, it’s quiet being mostly in a residential area.

The bad: Eh, the tactile strip doesn’t seem to extend all the way! And the outbound side is a little barren (though, to be fair, who’s going outbound here?) AND WHY IS THE SIGN TEAL?!

Nearby points of interest: There’s a small village!

Transit connections:
Green Line (D)
MBTA bus (59)

Overall, I like this station. It’s easily among my favorites, and for that I think it deserves a decent score, for the rural small town feels it gives.

Rating: 8/10
