You call this a bus stop?

By | September 20, 2007

Believe it or not, this is an MBTA bus stop (on the outbound side of Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, right before the BU Bridge):

“bus stop”

Note the clear informative signage (not!), the comfortable, shaded bus shelter (double not!) and the easy access to the bus from the sidewalk (as long as you don’t mind walking over uneven, unfinished concrete and lifting up the barrier tape to walk underneath it!).

Memo to the T: It’s customary in decently run public-transit systems to make some effort to mitigate construction that impacts transit stops.
