Big Shout Out of Thanks to the Harvard Square T Station!
The HSBA has tracked Harvard Square T Station embarking since July of 2010. Harvard Station was the busiest station in the entire subway system for 3 years straight…and just missed out on being #1 last year by fewer than 12, 000 people. (That could have been 1 weekend when the station was closed for repairs!) Harvard Station runs neck-to-neck with South Station. The numbers are as follows:
July 1, 2010 – July 1, 2011
Harvard Square – 7,045,749 South Station – 6,654,668
July 1, 2011 – July 1, 2012
Harvard Square – 7,616,864 South Station – 7,036,713
July 1, 2012 – July 1, 2013
Harvard Square – 7,257,252 South Station – 7,079,615
July 1, 2013 – July 1, 2014
Harvard Square – 7,315,707 South Station – 7, 327,504
With over 7 million people embarking at Harvard Square Station each year, it is important to acknowledge our gratitude for a system that needs a lot of help, but for the most part gets us where we want to go! We treasure our RED LINE through Cambridge and our busy Harvard Square Station. We implore our leaders to take care of the T….it is the engine that keeps the machine running. Leaders….show it some love…and thanks a million…times seven!
