Very hard to see, but when you got plenty of "use it or loose it" cash to burn, who cares?
I agree. This is a Transit Center; why are the signs not designed like the nearby MAX and WES station signage where you can clearly see the route, and there is detailed schedule and route information right at the stop?This is a bus stop sign. If this is good enough for a transit center, then TriMet should reduce MAX and WES station signage to these identical signs. There's no need to have four signs at each MAX station to identify the route and stop, along with additional signs for the schedule and route information - and those signs are lighted (which means an electric bill!).Just replace the picture of the bus front with a MAX front, "67" with "MAX" (or "WES"), and then the info below it to say "To Hillsboro" or "to Portland", or even "Red Line to Airport, Blue Line to Gresham" in little letters. Ta da.
There are still the two-sided pylon signs that give complete schedule and route information like this: http://cache.virtualtourist.com/4/4497834-TriMet_Bus_stop_with_stop_ID_number_schedule_map_Portland.jpgThese just mark the bays and replace the old style signs like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jmdspk/6423312353/
Are those signs actually posted at the bus stop?Visit the Tigard TC sometime to get a really good idea of where I'm getting at. Just try to find the 12 schedule...you know, the most frequent bus that shows up at the TC. I'll give you a hint. It ISN'T near the 12 stop. And I believe that one route's schedule sign is on the complete opposite side of the transit center from its assigned stop.
