King County Metro has made the decision to remove two of the bus shelters at the West Seattle Junction on the southwest side of the street. Citing "illegal and uncivil behavior" the shelters will be removed by Dec. 20. The well known metal reproductions of the West Seattle Herald front pages that decorate the shelters will be reused in other shelters in West Seattle Metro said.
Here is Metro's announcement:
"As part of an effort to address customer comfort and access to Metro bus service as well as to address non-transit use including illegal and uncivil behavior at the Alaska Junction, Metro is moving forward with the retention of two of the four oversized “double” shelters at one of the six transit bays in the area of California Avenue Southwest and Southwest Alaska Street as soon as Dec. 20.
