Yo Bus Seeking to Expand Curbside Operation on Pike Street

In business since March, Yo Bus has virtually taken over the entire concrete island outside the former Mobil station at 2 Pike Street. The mass of humanity that clogs the block to wait for buses now is impressive (nay, staggering). Long lines snake down the block on weekends, further complicated by a row of Citi Bikes. Get ready for more crowding – the Greyhound and Peter Pan parentals are hoping to expand the bus stop footprint.
Peering at the agenda of items for the transportation subcommittee of Community Board 3, Yo Bus is applying to double its daily service on Pike Street. At the moment, the controversial bus company offers fourteen round trips and wants to up that number to 28 by adding a second stop in the same spot.
Here’s a taste of the type of crowds on a busier Saturday morning, thanks to a concerned reader.
Can you imagine if Yo Bus had followed through and put the bus stop in Seward Park as initially planned? All these enhancements (service to Boston, added bus stop, etc.) were an inevitability.
We’ll see about the long game…
