“Advocates see station design as a Green Line extension compromise”

‘If you can do everything else, we can live with the fact that the stations weren’t originally as we envisioned,” said Rafael Mares, a vice president at the Conservation Law Foundation, which sued the state last decade to force the Green Line extension to move forward.

Mares said that’s not ideal – survey data shows people are more likely to use public transit when stations have more shelter, he said – but it’s acceptable.

“I don’t think it would be as good of a project as it would otherwise,” he said. But, “if you’re confronted with an increase in costs, you have to look first at what can give,” he said.
