The MBTA is proposing to sell station naming rights for 11 stations to generate an estimated $18.4 million annually, and the well of possible names runs deep. The MBTA offered JetBlue Airport Station as an example. So the Globe’s website Boston.com asked readers for suggestions.
In the not-too-distant future, readers suggested, Boston University students heading to Cambridge could take the Green Line from Hewlett-Packard’s Corner, switch to the Red Line at No. 9 Park Street, and get off at Samuel Adams Alewife Station. The Crimson crew could disembark at Upper Crust Harvard Station.
Rather than drive, Red Sox fans may opt to take the Green Line from Six Flags (formerly Riverside) Station to Sears Kenmore Station. Maybe Sox pitchers will take the T to Popeye’s Chicken Fenway Station.
Seafood and barbecue lovers could take the Orange Line to Kelly’s Roast Beef Wellington Station, or perhaps the Chili’s Baby Back Bay Ribs Station. How about heading to the water’s edge and the Legal Sea Foods Aquarium Station?
Finally, if the deluge of corporate sponsorships is enough to make you sick, hop aboard the Red Line and get off at Preparation MGH Station.
