Almost two weeks after our last big snow storm, many bus stops throughout the area continue to be unsafe and unusable.
Spring can't come soon enough for anyone forced to deal with uncleared, nearly unusable bus stops in the area.
On Central Avenue, you can wait for the number one on the sidewalk beside the bus stop sign, but when it stops you'll have to climb a snowbank to get to the bus. Best advice, try to match your footsteps to those who have made the climb before you. We hope your balance is good and you're sufficiently nimble, but not everybody is.
Pete Audet sent up cell phone pictures he took days after the last snowfall. His stop near McKinley and Washington was in bad shape.
“For one week, from, you enter the City of Albany on Washington Avenue all the way up through, not one bus stop was cleared,” said Audet.
