Shelters help comfort waiting riders

Walmart executives recently informed city officials they’ll front company dollars to install two shuttle shelters: one on store property, on Milan Road near Ohio 2, and another undermined spot along a SPARC route.

Earlier this year, city officials installed four long-awaited shuttle shelters at a quartet of popular spots. They received a grant, totaling about $68,000, to install these 5-by-12 shelters, each offering concrete floors, seating, a skylight roof and a trash receptacle.

It’s assumed the shuttle shelters Walmart wants will cost and look similar to the ones already installed. City officials also continue negotiations with other representatives from local governments benefiting from transit operations.

City officials want others to front funds for additional shelters.

I wonder how long it will take for an ordinary person waiting for the bus to stay dry instead of getting soaked in the rain.

Yeah it'll be nice to keep everyone out of the elements but they did invent umbrellas and rain coats....

Wonder how long it will take for waiting commuters to get mugged near them.

Although I'm sure they will be great for the people that use them, I really don't care because I don't live along a bus line, and refuse to live anywhere that is situated along a bus line.

Stop It

What is that blue thing next to it? A mailbox!? I thought they took all those out long ago. It needs a pay phone on the other side.
