We recently touched on how the lack of decent mass transit hurt the South End. Boston’s mass transit needs to expand, and this guy created a fantasy subway plan that benefits the South End. Seven Green Line stops between New England Medical Center and Dudley Square is genius!
I’d like to see it follow Washington Street, turning south at Columbia Square, to the Boston Medical Center. Then it could head out to South Bay before turning west to Dudley Square.
My plan is not the most direct route, but it connects Boston Medical Center to New England Medical Center. It also hits a bunch of big employment centers in South Bay- not just retail, but also the light industry in the area.
Does anyone have suggestions for other South End or Boston train lines? Where else could we put stations to benefit the city and the neighborhood?
Mass transit could be a great help to the South End and South Bay, but after the Big Dig, the city probably isn’t ready for more big-digging.
