This past year or so, a growing number of shelters have been added to both bus systems' routes. Since the bus systems or the respective cities normally clear shelters, some of these stops will no longer need to be cleared by a volunteer. When that happens, we would hope that we can reassign a volunteer to a nearby stop.
A passenger shelter appeared across from Brighton Medical Center at the Metro bus stop the last week before Christmas, 2011. The shelter has tempered glass sides and a dome top that keeps passengers out of rain, snow and wind. Additionally a secret santa has put a trash barrel inside the shelter. Brighton Medical Center includes the New England Rehabilitation Hospital. Some employees, as well as patients and their families, visit by using the bus.
Thanks again for volunteering.
