Two critical parts of every bus trip are the walk there and the walk back.

Sadly, many streets are designed for cars, not families, making for some very sorry bus stops.

Safe routes and safe bus stops are critical for people to access basic necessities, like schools, work, grocery stores, parks, healthcare, and other cultural and historical community resources.

Streetsblog USA is calling attention to sorry bus stops during their 2017 Sorriest Bus Stop in America tournament. The goal is to motivate action from the streets and transit agencies who are responsible for designing and constructing the bus stops.

You can enter the competition by submitting a photo of the sorriest bus stop with the exact location (preferably tagged in Google Maps) and a short description of what makes the bus stop so awful to angie@streetsblog.com by August 15.
