In my rant I pointed out that the ad in the bus shelter on Atwells at the arch had changed from Sunday to today.
Back in January, Bret asked RIPTA who is responsible for snow removal from the shelters. 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.
So, in the first photo you can clearly see that this is a Lamar shelter. Clearly between Sunday and today someone from Lamar was out to change the advertisement, and the shelter is clear. But what exactly does clear mean? Certainly clear should mean to the curb so that riders in the shelter can reach the bus, but does it?
Across the street, we have another Lamar shelter with the same ad, I don’t know if this ad went up since Sunday, but I suspect it did.
This shelter is clear to the curb, but this is becaue Dominica Manor does the snow removal here.
So is Lamar tasked with clearing to the curb so riders can reach the bus, or just within the actual confines of the shelter?
