Congrats, Seattle — You Have the Sorriest Bus Stop in America

Seattle-bus-stop-1

America, here is your sorriest bus stop. Streetsblog readers have anointed this bus stop in Seattle -- where riders have to wait on a narrow patch of grass between a high-speed road and an active freight rail track -- as the worst of 2017's field of 16 sorry bus stops.

In a competitive championship match, a late surge of reader votes carried the Seattle stop to victory over a similar bus stop in Munhall, Pennsylvania. A spokesman for King County Metro left this comment during the final match:

Metro recognizes our bus stop won’t win any beauty contests. It’s in an industrial area and currently has no ridership, with nearby stops that have almost no ridership, and we are currently looking at whether this stop should be removed.
