They even destroyed a section of the glass roof.

That didn’t take long

Within days of being complete the Cryus ave bus shelter has been disgraced.

You get $500 if you report it to the police. Link

Look at the Fancy Bus Shelters

It even says Gerritsen & Cyrus.

None of the other shelters were done over yet except for Lois Ave.

New Bus Shelters Coming

Looks like our bus shelters are being upgraded. So far, the Cryus Ave and the Lois Ave bus shelters has been upgraded.

Ouch! Lois Ave Bus Stop

Looks like someone got a little excited and jumped the curb last night.

In doing so, they destroyed a bus shelter located on Lois ave, while leaving their bumper behind.
