Bus Shelter Snow Shoveling Answer

In RIPTA, Snow, Transportation by Bret Ancowitz1 Comment

Mary Ann Barbary from the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority generously answered a question I emailed her about a topic that came up several weeks ago here on the Greater City Providence…

When it snows, who is responsible for shoveling the bus shelters? Here is the answer:

Lamar Advertising owns and maintains THEIR bus shelters which are clearly marked with their name and the side advertising panel. Lamar generally removes the snow from their bus shelters in a timely manner. They do NOT remove snow from the sidewalks.

Thank you for the clarification Mary Ann!

  1. So they shovel a hole in the middle of the snow? How nice of them.
