Gimme Shelter (a bus shelter, that is)

Posted on Sun, May 30, 2010 at 6:10 PM

So what's up with moving the bus stops from Tacoma Centre, out of the parking lot area and onto the street? Now pedestrians have to cross Tacoma, never easy at the best of times, but infinitely harder for the senior citizens who live behind Tacoma, who relied on the nearby bus stop.

Rumors say it was deemed too dangerous for customers backing out onto the street near where the buses pass in the parking lot and that's why the stops were moved.

I've got a suggestion for fixing that... how's about the drivers LOOK before backing out? Or back into the spot so they can drive out? Or move the damn parking spaces? I guess the drivers only have to worry about backing out into the path of the buses, though, since cars still drive through there and pedestrians still walk in the area.

It's ridiculous that people (especially the elderly) are being inconvenienced to accommodate bad driving (or parking) habits.—Not your typical transit complaint...
