But that traffic isn’t going into the city, and I’ve found that most people in wealthy suburbs are averse to transit anyway. Particularly if they’re building in Lexington, for example; it’s also a shorter commute for people in that area than Lexington to Cambridge. I think that people will drive in is fine.

Lab work has to be done on-site, but I’m also thinking of all the positions that can do hybrid; like legal, HR, etc.

Will it force people to drive (which personally I’m not that opposed to)? If the labs are closer to their homes in these suburban towns, that will mean less traffic coming into the city, and shorter commutes. If the labs moving out to cheaper land means that they offer flexible or part-time WFH hours for positions where this is possible, even better.
