A List

I’ve got a serious case of Mapper’s Block, so let’s list the rapid transit stations that can get away with having park-n-ride lots.

Any station with a park-n-ride facility not listed here would be better served by replacing the lot with shops and apartments and beefing up the local bus network to compensate. The list of cities is not exhaustive, but the list of stations within each city is. Although it’s not objectionable for these stations to have some manner of park-n-ride facility on the property, this doesn’t mean that aforesaid station can’t or shouldn’t be made more inviting or accessible to pedestrians, Quincy Adams. In addition, the thing most of these stations have in common should suggest who these park-n-ride lots should be for, namely, tourists.

  • Boston: Alewife, Oak Grove, Riverside, Quincy Adams
  • New York City: None
  • Philadelphia: None
  • Baltimore: Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, North Linthicum
  • Washington: Greenbelt, Shady Grove, Wiehle [until SV Phase 2 is complete], Vienna, Franconia-Springfield, Largo
  • Atlanta: Dunwoody, Doraville, Indian Creek, Hamilton E Holmes, College Park
  • Miami: Palmetto, Dadeland South
  • Chicago: Dempster/Skokie, Rosemont, Forest Park [or: None, if riding Metra doesn’t completely suck]
  • San Francisco: Pittsburg, Richmond, Dublin
  • Los Angeles: Norwalk, Chatsworth, APU
