I was waiting for the bus on Saturday and I got to thinking…how come the bus stop pavilion is a square, instead of a long rectangle? The square shape is bad for a few reasons:
-only enough seating for 3 people along back edge
-if it’s nasty weather outside and people herd themselves into the pavilion, the people who get there last are the first ones on the bus
-general uncomfortableness of squeezing together and having people on all sides of you, instead of forming a line

I propose a bus-length shallow pavilion that would allow people to naturally form a line while allowing them space to sit down on a bench and/or take refuge from the weather. I also would really like to see swings!!
