CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - If it's raining or cold and windy, it's not exactly comfortable if you have to stand at a bus stop waiting for a bus. That's the concern of a person who wrote See, Click, Fix.
There are hundreds of bus stops in the Charlotte area. Some of them are sheltered but most of them aren't.
The intersection at West Boulevard and South Tryon Street in Charlotte can get very busy. There are several very popular businesses here as well as a nearby residential area. Within a stone's throw of one another, are several CATS bus stops.
But none of them is sheltered, which is why one viewer wrote See, Click, Fix: "This is one of the most busiest bus stops on this side of the city...the three that's on this corner are in continuous use from sun up till sun down. There are a lot of mothers with small children that use these and have to stand in the rain...and several disabled people have to do the same. If you could get some covered stops installed, I and everyone that use these would surely appreciate it very much."
I talked to several people who were waiting at the bus stops, and all agreed they would like to see shelters at the stops.
So what would it take to get covered shelters at those bus stops? I've contacted CATS to find out what criteria are used to determine which stops get shelters.
