Yesterday, I found out that my bus fare would be dropping from $1.75 to $1.25, and I thought that had to be the best transit news of the week.
But this morning I was pleasantly surprised to walk up to my somewhat neglected 1R bus stop on 59th and Telegraph to see this:
It’s a bit bare bones – no maps or bench yet and it’s hard to tell if there will be a Nextbus screen installed, but honestly, they could leave it as is and I’d be happy. I can’t tell you what a pain it was this rainy season attempting to hold an umbrella and sometimes heavy bags. Now I’ll be able to hang out under a shelter and stay dry.
