As a former user of Mishawum, I miss the shorter drive. If I didn't make 308 in the morning, all of the spots were gone. Anderson never fills up, which is good for making later trains. And the nice, warm station building with functioning rest rooms is great.

But what is the MBTA's incentive to reopen it? It will add time to the schedules.

Plus, with the Logan Express gone from Mishawum, the building is no longer accessible.

I don't think it will ever happen... the nearby merchants and hotels will find a compromise, perhaps with shuttle service to Anderson.

You are right. In fact, it's supposed to start next month.
