If properly maintained bus stops are nice to have conveniently located in the neighborhood. But these bus stops at 10th and Walnut in Hillsboro are a major source of litter. It was nice when TriMet made the shelters no smoking. But as a result many people smoke and discard their butts about 15 to 20 feet away from the shelter. Maybe since TriMet doesn't own that property they feel no obligation to clean up those areas. I don't know why TriMet doesn't clean this up but it is an ugly mess. After a while you wonder is it really all that nice to have a bus stop in your neighborhood?
