muni_driver.jpgSan Francisco police and transit officials will be discussing solutions for dealing with a problematic bus shelter in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood at a community meeting this evening.

The problem stop, the San Francisco Municipal Railway bus shelter at Turk and Hyde streets, will be addressed at the monthly community meeting at the Tenderloin Police Station.

People living near the bus stop have complained about crime there, Muni’s transit outreach manager Lulu Feliciano said.

Other residents are concerned that the shelter will be removed and they won’t be able to catch the outbound 19-Polk bus there, Feliciano said.

“We’re going to listen to both sides and talk about solutions,” such as replacing the shelter with one that has better lighting and other features that would deter criminal activity, she said.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the community room at the Tenderloin Police Station at 301 Eddy St.
