This is the only Logan Express without an overhand. It needs to be a junction point for buses to Boston or other places.
Theres plenty of parking and room for more..

Ridership has gone up due to gas prices. Reading through the history of Logan Express at Peabody shows

2) bad timing. Opened two days after September 11th

Ridership is generally higher in later 2008/2009 (anectodal evidence). Parking lot was actually filled during spring break. Ocassionally get the only 1 person bus but seems to average 5-15 (15 was the 4:15)
