    I should be a shoe-in for that award.

    • drax

      Or even a shoo-in.

      • Cobbler’s Local 501

        I like the first way better.

  • Hikin’ the Pike

    That bus stop only serves one bus. In all my years of running by it, I’ve never actually seen anyone waiting at that stop.

      If you drive/walk/fly by that bus stop during the hours when commuting custodial workers and/or restaurant workers are either commuting between jobs [maybe 4-6] or heading home for the evening after work [after 9], you’d see clusters of MetroBus riders at that bus stop. I’ve lived in there for 9 years and often see riders.
