Besides being right at the site, the Indigo line would have much more frequent service. That's a game changer.

The developer sees that potential and is one of those touting the possibility of a commuter rail extension along the Riverside spur, but he is not offering $$$ to help make it happen. It won't happen any other way. Other developments like Boston Landing and Assembly Square have contributed to (and benefitted from) public transit improvements.

No, this is a rail line that would begin/end at Riverside and travel over existing rail ROW into Allston, possibly onto Kendall and North Station: https://www.bostonmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/01/MBTA.jpg

I would like to see river access for the residents of the new apartments, and for residents of the existing neighborhood. Also, link it up to other river paths. People who live at the Comm Ave apartments, people who live on Charles Street, people who use the canoe and kayak rental, etc., should NOT have to walk all the way around. They should be able to walk along the river to get to Riverside station. I doubt people even know they can take the green line to Riverside and walk over to the canoe and kayak rentals. Many cities and towns, Waltham included, have made sure to utilize the space along the Charles River for recreation. Why can't we do the same?
