The old station was a byzantine maze with the air of a medieval dungeon. One might have expected to face a Minotaur in the bowels of the complex. One can already tell that commuting through this station will be a more civilized, uplifting experience. It's impossible to put a price tag on an intangible like this, and I won't say that this was the best possible use of transit funds. But let's be honest, this station complex was a depressing mess before.
Our number one focus should be on expanding the reach and capacity of the system, but the overall rider experience is important too.
