The fare controlled area is feet away from the High Speed Line platform, and there is no need for access to the platform unless you're boarding a trolley. The fares are exactly the same. They could have made for a speedier and more efficient transfer/boarding process, plus include the platform inside the station building. They essentially nuked the old station and started from scratch, anyway.
What has stirred up opinion—and emotion—is the prospect that the T could decide soon that it’s time to sunset the popular, but aging, fleet of trolleys. It has turned into a battle of heart strings versus purse strings, a fierce debate about the T’s priorities. Should the agency be all about making the trains run on time at the lowest possible cost, or is there room for emotion to come into play? Nearly everyone agrees the trolleys are costly to operate, but is that all that matters?
