New Wal Mart bus stop leads to complaints

Posted: Updated:

While there's been a lot of positive's about the new Wal Mart super store on Allentown road, one Lima woman is upset over where the bus stop is located. Sam Shriver has the story.
Joyce Oglesbee is a frequent bus rider. She values the service of the Allen County RTA.

 She also appreciates businesses like Meijer that make it easy for her to get on a bus close to the entrance of the store. But over at the new Wal Mart on Allentown road she doesn't like where the RTA bus stop is located.

 Oglesbee who suffers from a bad back and bad knees finds the walk from the bus stop at Wal mart too grueling and has complained to management. Operations director at the Allen County RTA, Dee Drexler says the decision on where the bus stop was located was not theirs.

Bill Wertz a spokesman for Wal Mart says they are sympathetic to her concerns about the bus stop and are contacting their design people to revisit the location, but they don't want it to compromise the safety of other shoppers.
