Moving in to a Lynx Bus Stop

Most Lynx passengers look for proximity to a bus stop when choosing a new home, but how many have considered living at the bus stop itself?

The other day, we received this photo and note from David Porter, founder of this blog and Have you ever seen anything like this? What would you do if someone started living at your bus stop?

"This is on the north side of Sand lake Road near Voltaire Drive. Sometimes there are people standing at this bus stop because this gentleman is taking up one of the bus benches. This gentleman has been living here for at least three weeks. When I say living I mean morning, noon and night; I pass there at 2 in the morning and he's sleeping with a blanket pulled up on him. Homeless people have the right to sit on a bus bench, but can they just take it over? I wouldn't be surprised if he's carrying out his normal bodily functions within close proximity to this bench. I feel sorry for him, but I also feel sorry for the riders who can't sit down because this guy has made himself at home."
