Points of Interest The Broad Street Station is the middle of the downtown commercial district. This is a busy station during rush hours. In the PCC era cars would stop twice on the long platforms. Once to unload passengers, then again to load. Also, before the TVM's, fare collectors would be on the platform so the driver did not have to collect fares.
