Bus shelter on Morgan Street taken with my camera phone.
A bus shelter has popped up on Morgan Street at the R-Line stop near the intersection with Dawson Street. Bus shelters were on the to-do list for Capital Area Transit so hopefully more are on the way, especially with the colder season just a few months away.
I’ve seen some bus shelters pop up lately, but this is the first I’ve seen for the R-Line. Wonder if they’re starting with high-usage stops?
One I’d like to see is at the stop on Glenwood at North, in front of Hibernian. Apparently tons of folks ignore the “No Parking, Bus Lane” sign there. Maybe they’d actually notice a shelter.
Does anyone know the reasoning behind not having a bench included with the shelter? There is actually a shelter on the corner of Salisbury and Lenoir, although there isn’t a bus stop there. I’ve noticed that the benches in these shelters are usually only big enough for 2 people to sit too.
^The one in the pic is an R-Line stop. If they’re running on time, you’ll never wait for one as long as you’d wait for a CAT or TTA bus. It’s like every 15 minutes. I don’t think any R-Line stop has a bench of any kind, unless it happens to be sharing a stop space with CAT.
