Bus “Super Stop” under construction on Columbia Pike

Arlington County has been planning a series of 24 “Super Stops” along Columbia Pike. The new bus stops will have expanded shelter and seating, electronic real-time arrival displays, maps, and a raised curb platform. They’re intended to be more like light rail stations than bus stops.

Eventually the Super Stops will actually be light rail stations for the Columbia Pike streetcar, but until that opens they’ll only serve buses.

The first Super Stop is under construction now, and beginning to take shape. It’s at the corner of Walter Reed Drive, and is scheduled to open in the coming weeks. Here are three pictures of the progress, taken last Wednesday.
