Grandview Manor Residents Club Adopt DTA Shelter
Published: Expires: 7/6/2009
The Grandview Manor Residents Club held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new bus shelter they adopted on Thursday, June 18, as part of the DTA’s Adopt a Shelter Program. The newly erected shelter serves residents of Grandview Manor and Tri Towers along with those utilizing the Rainbow Center on Third Avenue East.
The DTA revised downtown routing in September of 2007, which resulted in westbound buses running down Third Avenue East to Superior Street – providing direct service to downtown and western destinations from the Grandview Manor and Tri-Towers.
Residents of Grandview Manor and Tri-Towers petitioned the DTA to move the bus stop on Third Avenue East closer to their main sidewalk and to place a shelter there with the condition that they would adopt the shelter and keep it clean and orderly. The DTA worked with the HRA, who manages the senior housing complexes, to move the bus stop and erect the bus shelter.
DTA ridership at Grandview Manor and Tri-Towers is high and residents are expected to use the shelter for years to come.
In accordance with the DTA’s Adopt a Shelter Program, passenger shelters can be installed in high-use areas; but a commitment to keep the shelter clean and orderly is required.
