Why can't we install temporary lights for a year and gather actual data? Why is the City relying on bogus logic to justify inaction? To make the decision based on good data, you need to run a pilot program with proper time to reshape the travel patterns of the local residents. By counting those crossing now, you have no way of tracking who is going straight to Queen or Locke out of habit, or who is getting on/off the bus a stop early or late just to avoid crossing at Kent.

400m is not a big deal to many of us, but to a senior or disabled individual that can mean the difference between taking the HSR or having to arrange other transportation (taxi, DARTS, etc), or simply not going out at all. We have spent all this money on making sure our entire HSR fleet is comprised of accessible, low-floor buses, now it's time to make sure people can get TO the bus stops.
