Footnotes, and some suggestions
I footnoted some of the usage statistics; you might actually want to footnote all of them, since they're from enough different time ranges.
It might be interesting (if a bit time-consuming) to put coordinates in the Station column.
Also, the term "Silver Line Waterfront" appears only once; it should probably be explained (all of SL1/2/3?).
- I'm frustrated that stations that changed names, as opposed to closing, are not listed. I recall that Downtown Crossing once had platforms (station names) Winter, Summer, and Washington Street Under. State had four different names on the four platforms - were they State, Milk, Union, and Friend, or were some of those grouped with Haymarket and Devonshire with State? Of course the change from Scollay Square to Government Center is well-know due to the folk song "Charlie on the MTA". ETOrdman (talk) 23:20, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
- That's not information that belongs in this list (which needs a huge amount of cleanup as is). That belongs in the articles about the individual stations (Haymarket was originally Union and Friend on what's now the Orange Line; State originally Milk and State plus Devonshire on what's now the Blue Line; Downtown Crossing originally Summer and Winter, and Washington on what's now the Red Line; Chinatown originally Boylston and Essex) and on the Orange Line itself. Other stations have changed names as well, sometimes several times. Adding that here would merely clutter up the list. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 02:30, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
- Those stations are not on the Subway, they are on the commuter rail. they have been updated at List of MBTA Commuter Rail stations.--Found5dollar (talk) 23:44, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
"Subway" stations only?
It looks like SL4 and SL5 stations have been included here, but those lines operate as part of the bus system, whereas SL1 and SL2 are in fact rapid transit lines. See more discussion at Silver Line (MBTA). Tylr00 (talk) 15:53, 26 August 2016 (UTC)Tylr00
