I would suggest, however, that much of the positive impact of the benefit of that would accrue to property owners along the line.

This doesn't make much sense to me. The reason properties on rapid transit lines like subways are more valuable is because people want to use them more. Rents may increase, but that will be a result of people wanting to live there. Retail/commercial space may become more valuable and see more lucrative leases because the properties will be better spots for business. If property values go up, its a reflection primarily on the fact that people want to be there more. To me, that means everyone wins.
