So, have you heard the story of the $Million$ $Dollar$ bus stop built by VDOT in Northern Virginia?
CICK HERE to read it. But basically, they are taking $1 million of your tax dollars to build a "Super Stop" as a prototype for 24 more just like it. Meanwhile, they tell you that you have to pay more for gas, more for car registration, more for alternative fuel vehicles, more for sales tax, all because they are out of money.
I suppose they are calling it a "Super Stop" so you'll be tricked into thinking it's some kind of multifunctional shopping mall/bus stop. But no, its just an artsy fartsly regular bus stop -- but it's stainless steel, like your stylish home refrigerator! If you read the article, they have a picture of it. It wouldn't even keep you dry in a rain storm!
CLICK HERE to see the catalog price (yes, there is an online catalog for bus stops!) for a normal bus stop structure, that would keep you dry in a storm and shaded in the heat. And you can buy 185 of them for what we just paid for one!
