County announces new design for Columbia PIke bus stopsLast week, Arlington County revealed the new design for its enhanced transit stops along Columbia Pike.

The new stops cost between $362,000 and $672,000, depending on size. They will serve riders of buses and — eventually, as currently planned — streetcars with a large, angled canopy, concrete seats and an electronic real-time arrival display.

The cost of the stops has been significantly reduced since the county put a halt to the “Super Stop” design that resulted in the infamous $1 million bus stop at the corner of the Pike and S. Walter Reed Drive.

Are the new “transit centers,” in your view, worth the cost?
