Cemusa Street Abbreviations

Bus Stop: Grand & Clinton

Cemusa is no stranger to controversy regarding the rapid takeover of their soulless street furniture. In the recent past, the Spanish company has been plagued with improper spelling and incorrect street designations. And now there is another issue, albeit less egregious. In passing the “upgraded” bus shelters around the neighborhood, we’ve noticed a lack of consistency with the abbreviation of “street.”

Bus Stop: Allen & Stanton

For example, the bus stop at Grand and Clinton versus Allen and Stanton. The street names listed on both signs contain the same number of letters (five and seven respectively), yet one abbreviates while the other doesn’t. What gives? There’s clearly enough blue space to print the word in its entirety. And while we’re on the subject, it would definitely be nice to see number suffixes.
