'Super Stop' Pulls Out All the Stops

Passengers on Port Authority of Allegheny County bus routes that serve the Robinson Township area, 10 miles west of downtown Pittsburgh, may do a double take when their buses pull in at the “Super Stop,” which stands on land donated by IKEA. The shelter, spearheaded by the Airport Corridor Transportation Authority, features tables, benches, chairs, potted plants, and a bike workstation—a self-contained, free-standing facility with an air pump and other tools cyclists can use to make simple repairs. IKEA, a partner in the stop’s development, provided throw pillows and area rugs just for the ribbon-cutting, and it wrapped portions of the shelters with scenes of its furnishings to give bus passengers the sensation of sitting in a room.
