I can't believe Assembly Row station is being built. It's literally a stone's throw away from Wellington. They couldn't just build a walkway or offer shuttle service to/from Sullivan? Orange Line commuters now have to suffer with shuttle bus service for years and then, when the station is finished, will have a ridiculous extra stop on their commute to Boston forever. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of Assembly Row and the improvements they're making to the area are great, but this is totally unnecessary. Good job MBTA, now you'll have another station you can't properly maintain.
