Need for a Super Stop at Five Points West

One of the most dangerous situations that exists in the entire MAX system is the lack of a Super Stop in Five Points West.

Three different routes serve this area, but the riders can’t catch more than one route at a given stop and sometimes hoping to cut down on their wait times will run across 6 or 8 lanes of traffic betting that the other route will come first.

With the creation of a Super Stop the bus riders could get all three routes in one place as this would even cut down on their wait time as they could now just get the first bus.

Above is a video that captures well the vulgarity of this stop in just four and half minutes with an early bus, a late bus, and a lady crossing 6 lanes of traffic missing that early bus and her doc’s appointments.
