The Subway located inside Uptown Station isn’t prospering as expected. It might have something to do with the Town not allowing them to have a sign visible from the street so people know they are there. From the discussion last Monday, the Town may allow them to use Sandwich Boards for advertising. The ones the Town uses to tell people not to stop in front of the building don’t work, but maybe these will.
It looks like Subway was paying $1,927.33 per month. The new schedule will be:
What nobody mentioned is passenger traffic at Uptown dropped dramatically in 2016, but did recover some of the losses in 2017. Travel is not back to 2015 levels.
It would have made more sense to allow a Subway lighted sign on the building.
Town policy is now costing $900 a month.
I wonder what else is down in Uptown?
