Can a Bus Stop Be Pretty?
Adam Vaccaro reports from Massachusetts:
For three days this week, a bus stop in Everett was bedecked liked a wedding trellis in summer, with sprays of dahlias, roses and other bright flowers ringing the otherwise bland shelter. Installed by local artist Krissy Price, the flowers were in place between Tuesday and Thursday, a “quick hit” experiment to improve the image of the bus stop, said Everett transportation planner Jay Monty.
The city has more ideas about how to make the bus stop more attractive to users, and maybe even make it a place where people want to linger. Ice cream is mentioned, which seems like a good start.
