Q.  Why did they put benches on Huron St. everywhere but at the bus stop in front of the courthouse? And why don’t they have a bus stop on the other side of Huron St. in that block?

A. Some bus stops primarily serve boarding riders, who are likely to need benches or shelters, and others mostly serve disembarking riders, who do not. Too few riders board at the courthouse to justify a bench or shelter.

There’s no stop across the street because the PNC Bank building and Courthouse Square are relatively close to the curb, which could pose difficulties when a ramp is deployed for someone using a wheelchair. There is a stop west of Huron on that side, by the Key Bank parking lot.
