They never promised the new Forest Hills busway would be waterproof

Forest Hills upper busway with lots of water

Dalgonon snapped the new upper busway at Forest Hills during the rain today shortly before 6 p.m. - probably making lower-busway riders jealous with how little water there was. In any case, the T promised to take a look.

It's all so tiresome.

By the time the T responds the water will have magically disappeared.

That ain't NOTHIN! The lower busway looked like Niagra Falls after the Spring thaw. Water was falling from 40' up onto the stairs and when people walked under with umbrellas, the deluge flattened them. The roof valleys concentrated the torrent onto the #32 bus platform so the 60-80 people waiting were thoroughly wet from the water splashing up off the cement. It was like shuffling through a car wash just to get onto the bus. On the plus side, that platform has never been so clean.

I got to wait for the 32 bus, too. That torrent has been happening for a while now...I wonder when/if it is going to get fixed.

Oh the new busway is supposed to include proper drainage too? Geez, riders are so demanding! :-D

What do you want? Look what your dealing with. Time to go across the street to Forest Hill Diner for another bacon, egg and cheese. Be right back. I'm mean way back.
