Ashmont/Peabody Square Station

The Boston Globe reports this morning in a story about the Science Park station that the MBTA will be adding "Peabody Square" to Ashmont Station. We knew there was support for this in the neighborhood, but had not heard it was actually going to happen. Pretty neat!

"For the MBTA, the bestowing of a secondary local name to stations is becoming increasingly common as a part of other, larger renovations. The designation Boston Public Library was added to the local signs on the Green Line at Copley Station. On the Red Line, the label Peabody Square was added to signs at Ashmont Station."
