And Needham folk would take the GL, not the OLI was talking about the CR-to-Forest Hills-and-change-to-OL scenario that Charles River Branch speculated about, which absolutely would still have the constant stream of buses because there would be nothing to replace them.
Extending the OL, yes, would replace most of the buses and rejig some of the rest. 34, Georgetowne, 30, 50, 51 would stay but might start in Roslindale Sq.; 35, 36, 37 might just disappear, or become much shorter from stations in W. Rox.
