Charlotte is bursting with public transit options, but walking to the bus stop can be dangerous.
Local advocates have released a new report on how to make them safer.
Sustain Charlotte studied each of the major intersections and areas near bus stops.
Now, Sustain Charlotte has some ideas on how to improve safety.
The group released a wish list from transit riders.
They want more crossings, including signalized crossings and islands pedestrians can stand on, along with wider sidewalks and safer behavior from drivers, and better bus stop amenities, such as shelters and lights.
