I’ve seen bus shelters along Douglas Ave completely inaccessible and people standing in the street waiting for the bus. Outside my office on Jefferson Blvd, my coworkers wait for their bus at the above pictured shelter which also has not been graced by a shovel.
I see the fire department shovel out the fire hydrants. Property owners are supposed to shovel their sidewalks. So, who’s responsibility is it to shovel out the bus stops?
- Is it RIPTA’s responsibility to clear these?
- Is it just part of the sidewalk and fall on the town/city’s responsibility?
- Does Lamar own these shelters? Does that make them responsible?
- If I fell… who would I sue?
