Is there data accessible anywhere that shows approximately the numbers at each T stop(all modes) from where trips originated and their destination? I'm assuming most likely not as the T doesn't do zone fares through out the system.

@bigeman312 has been sharing great charts of MBTA ridership since covid started in the COVID-19 Impacts on Logan, MBTA, and Boston travel and tourism thread. I assume the data they are using is coming from the MBTA developers portal, which includes APIs for real-time data and regularly updated historical data for download, but maybe they are using a different source. I don't believe these data sources provide information about trip destinations or station exits.

Back in 2014, a couple of guys put together this awesome visualization. Their data includes station exits, but the opening description makes it sound like this was only available to them because they were working directly with the MBTA.
