Just a Bus Stop

by Brian Gregory

Location: 175th Street & Meridian Ave N in Shoreline, WA

The site I have chosen is a sheltered bus stop in the city of Shoreline. The stop sits on the south site of 175th street, just east of the intersection of Meridian Ave N and 175th Street. Another block to the east is a major on and off ramp to I-5. Just behind the shelter is a park called Ronald Bog which is mostly covered by water, but does include a small play field and shelter. At the intersection of 175th and Meridian are a church and an elementary school. The church parking lot acts as a park and ride facility during the week, and most of the people parking here are using the bus stop. The bus stop is only serviced by a few routes, two of them are express routes that go downtown, and third is an express route that goes to the university district. The majority of the bus riders and park-and-ride users frequent the stop for the buses that travel downtown.

Micro Urbanism

The term “micro-urbanism” describes small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a wide variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. It also involves ways to reinterpret the urban landscape. As a class project, the purpose for creating this Guide is to bring attention to aspects of our everyday environment that are important but often neglected parts of the urban experiences.
