VIDEO: Columbia Pike 'Super Stop' Installation
Bus and future streetcar station is first of 24 planned for the Pike.
Arlington County recently completed the installation of the canopy over a so-called "Super Stop" for bus and, eventually, streetcar service along Columbia Pike.
The Walter Reed East station is the first of 24 planned for the Pike. The Columbia Pike corridor has the highest number of bus riders in Virginia, according to Arlington County, with each stop averaging 600 to 800 passengers daily.
The Super Stops provide shelter for us to 15 passengers, lighting, wind screens and heating, according to the county. They also will provide real-time electronic and printed schedule information and, in the future, ticket vending.
