Transit staff look at far side stops more often now than in the past. Staff recognize that these stops can increase pedestrian safety and reduce traffic-related issues. However, depending on the location it is not always easy to relocate a bus stop from a near sided bus stop to a far side bus stop.
We have made this change to two bus stops along Johnson Street: Bus Stop #414 (now NE of Johnson and Steel) and Bus Stop #409 (now NE of Johnson and Grove).
Transit staff are currently working on a bus stop infrastructure study and looking at where the City can create more far sided stops throughout Barrie, when feasible, will be part of that study.Anonymous shared this idea ·
