Guest presenter, Aaron Isaacs of Metro Transit answered questions about the possibilities of creating art shelters in place of traditional bus shelters. J. Hallstrom prepared a bus stop inventory map prior to the meeting. The map identified where each bus stop, bench and shelter is located in KFNA and was as reference tool for NRP Committee members.
Isaacs stated that in order to be approved for a shelter a bus stop must generate 40 riders a day. Metro Transit has started a process of reviewing ridership at existing shelter sites in order to asses shelter needs etc. Isaacs thought that the site at 38th and Grand Ave., which has an art shelter planned (although delayed) may have less riders then this.
