READER REPORT: Stuck bus at Delridge/Trenton

8:46 PM: Thanks to Matthew for the photo and report from Delridge/Trenton:

Not sure what happened here, but the bus appears to have come down the alley between 22nd and Delridge heading north and can’t make the turn out to delridge heading east because of a car parked in a temporary no-parking spot (not pictured). I don’t know how this bus managed to get through the alley to begin with.

Radio communication indicates police are trying to find the mis-parked car’s owner.

9:22 PM: All clear, Matthew reports in a comment.

    Bus was either coming to do a coach change for a broken down bus or was a bus that got fixed on the road and was being driven back to the bus barn. Driver probably thought he(or she)had a slick shortcut but didn’t know the area well enough to know they got themselves in a compromising position. It happens once in a while.

    I’m speculating the bus was returning to base and forgot that Barton and Delridge is closed for construction. It appears that it would have been possible to pulled it off if a car had not been parked on Delridge.

    @ Matthew you’re right. It probably could’ve made it had the two cars not been parked in the no-park-zones. Thing that gets me is why was Metro re-directing multiple other buses that were supposed to turn down Trenton from Delridge to conduct Y turns in the middle of Delridge. Created way more of a traffic jam than was necessary. They shoudl’ve just had them continue north to Thistle or Holden and turn there. In any case, it was eventful to say the least!

Sorry, comment time is over.
