Seattle Transit Blog: Metro’s New Bus Stop Signs. This is what I am talking about. While not perfect (London still seems a bit better), Seattle is hands over fist better than what Twin Cities Metro Transit uses at the vast majority of its bus stops in the Twin Cities (see video below from The Transit Camera). Transit mode work share in metro Seattle 8.7%, metro Minneapolis 4.7% (2009 ACS). Obviously the signs did not do all of that, but it is one important factor among many. And this is without a significant rail network. Bus Stop Signs are cheaper than track.
