M.R. LEE appears to have a short memory as to what was happening in Seaside before the bus stop build-outs were introduced (Gazette letters, June 8). Buses could not draw up to the kerb at bus stops due to illegally parked cars.
Passengers had to thread their way past the cars into the middle of the road, where the steep camber of Seaside made boarding the bus difficult for many; impossible for some.
Now, the bus stops in exactly the same place as it used to (i.e. a car’s width from the kerb) and passengers can board much more easily, thus shortening the length of time that the bus spends at the stop.
