    "The new MBTA extension will pass through it making it easier for commuters to and from the area into Boston or Medford. It's still a diverse cultural experience with a grand Brazilian shop and other smaller shops (including the reliable market, that's been there for almost 40 years), to give the Square flair and connect many of its diverse residents. I also love the memories I have here, including the Dunkin Donuts that's still there. I also enjoy the convenience of getting into Boston through it."

    "I walk. If I need to get to Boston, Medford or Cambridge I take the MBTA (bus) to the stations to Davis or Lechmere and then rapid transit to my destinations. In my city we have bikeshare, carshare services and uber/lyft and greencab. It is also cyclist friendly -- they have bike paths and bike sections on the roads to make it easier for these commuters."
