Morning Poll: New Pike Bus Stop Cost

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?
