Dozens of Megabus passengers line up at a parking lot near the Metrodome about a half-dozen times a day, but the New Jersey-based low-cost bus company doesn't have a shelter at its makeshift terminal in downtown Minneapolis, the Star Tribune reports.
This is generating complaints of littering and loitering from nearby businesses where some riders hang out to escape the weather, use bathrooms or store bags.
“We’re trying to resolve the issue in a way that is acceptable to the city and doesn’t push out Megabus,” Steve Poor, the zoning administration and enforcement manager of Minneapolis, told the newspaper.
Mike Alvich, vice president of marketing and public relations for Megabus.com told KARE 11, "Right now we're engaged in conversation with the City of Minneapolis in looking at a number of alternative locations. In the mean time, the city has allowed us to continue at our current stop."
