That doesn't seem realistic commute time wise for people in NH to drive to Lowell on top of the CR then subway. Maybe there are some doing it, but have to figure most are driving to some burb job on 128. I do agree that Job access from SNH is definitely an issue.No...they're taking up parking spots in Lowell garage. That's fact, not supposition, documented to the nines in the studies. This is why there's such purely selfish, in-district motivation for hitting Nashua and why they need the minimal assist for the cross-border stations to make it happen. In-district mobility is tremendously upgraded diverting those NH plates so MA plates have a shot.
The only real option would be an Express that has a couple of stops in Nashua and has no additional stops past the Pheasant Lane Mall until you hit North Station.
