There are 2 comments on New T Stops Now Open along West Campus

  1. This is good, but the MBTA persistently ignores the best and most easy way to speed up the above-ground Green line. The main problem is not too many stops, but constantly stopping for red lights. Left turns for cars are prioritized over public transit! The T is often stopped even when there are no cars to turn! How hard would it be to install a sensor that switches the turn signal red when a train is on the platform? Very low cost, too.

    The concept of “rate limiting step” is important here. The T is slowed by both the stops and the lights. If – as I suspect – the lights have a bigger effect, they are rate limiting and eliminating stops will not do much.
