To make a long story short I just moved in to a new home (not new new but you know what I mean)... And there's a bus stop right in front of my house... The issue is if you were standing at the bus stop and look to your left, there's another bus stop literally 50 yards away... and if you were to look to your right, you'd find a bust stop (all for the same bus) also 50 yards away.
I have no idea who thought you should have 3 bus stops in 3 consecutive short blocks. What really erks me about the stop is that people throw their trash on the floor despite my neighbor having a trash can nearby... the trash includes nickel bags too... and to make matters worse, people smoke cigarettes there which exposes my kids to 2nd hand smoke every time we enter or leave our home... and thinking about the noise and air pollution caused by the bus stopping and moving so frequently.
I want to request a bus stop removed (really both directions) given the reasons above and given the fact it's not an inconvenience as the other bus stops are very close as is... Heck I'm sure some riders would appreciate one less unnecessary stop.
Any idea how I can go about making that happen? I have already contacted my local assemblyman's office and they said they'll contact the MTA... just wondering if there's anything else I need to or should do.
Thanks in advance.
