The owners of a strip mall in Cheyenne, Wyoming didn't like the 'loiterers' and 'trash' that came from having a bus stop near their property, so the transit authority removed the stop for them. "Nick Perry of Cheyenne Plaza LLC said he asked the city remove its bus stop out of concern for his tenants and the overall condition of the plaza," reports James Chilton, Wyoming Tribune Eagle.

Transit users complain that, because of limited sidewalks in the area, it's inconvenient to walk to the mall from other stops, saying they would take an able-bodied person five minutes to walk to the mall. Paula Uhden, a transit rider who uses an oxygen tank wherever she goes in public is worried she won't be able to make it to the dollar store in the plaza that she frequently stops at without using a cab, making her commute cost $15 each way rather than 75¢.   

"Perry asserts that when his company first bought the plaza, there was no bus stop on the premises," writes Chilton. This is a claim city officials dispute, saying they have maps that show the stop starting as early as 1998.
