Clearly mark all bus stop "zones" on the street and enforce illegal parking within bus stop zones downtown. When vehicles park "in" bus stops the visibility of waiting riders from a bus operator's view point is diminished. If they can't see you they end up driving right by. This is especially true of taller vehicles. This may require co-ordination with the police.

Background: I have been driven by without being picked up while waiting for the westbound 4 and 22 on 6th and Nueces 3 times because a truck was parked in the bus stop. This was even despite me frantically waiving over head with both arms. The truck is on a regular schedule and I have learned to wait in the street for the buses while also waiving both arms. Waiting in the street is probably a safety issue and potential legal nightmare.

The solution to the problem is to have routes that p[ass through downtown use Guadalupe/Nueces instead of Congress. This is the ONLY good thing about the planned Metro Rapid, which makes too many stops to be an improvement over current limited buses.

Thankfully, not just MetroRapid but most of the local service buses going through downtown will be diverted to Guadalupe southbound and Lavaca northbound when those four downtown stations are built. However, this doesn't solve the problem above because the 4 and 22 run east and west.
