With political clout, and since the owner in this case is the state, they may have the weight to sway a decision, but it is not ultimately up to them to decide what happens. It is absolutely a no brainer to use this line for passenger service and to serve Kendall Square.From your lips to God's ears...
You’re not going to see any new developments with the line until after the Pike realignment is done, but post West Station I guarantee the GJ will be a passenger route.

MIT students and faculty can ride EZ Ride for free with an MIT ID, and the public can ride it as well for a small fare (It's like $2).

It is a proposed station for through and terminating trips located on the Beacon Park site. The site will include a passenger station and layover facility.
