The Ridership Benefits of Infill Stations—Coming Soon to the MBTA Orange Line
Yonah Freemark wants to let readers in on a secret: adding infill stations is "[one] of the best ways to increase transit ridership at a reasonable price [and] requires little additional service. It requires no new line extensions. And it can be done to maximize the value of existing urban neighborhoods."
The article provides a chronology of recent infill station projects from around the country, like in Washington D.C., Chicago, and the East Bay Area, as well as making the financial case for the cost-per-rider benefit of such projects.
