POFQ Bus Stop Refurbishment Work Commencing 13 April

Unread post by The Sassagoula Sentinel » April 4th, 2015, 10:45 am

Orlando Park News is reporting that the bus stop at Port Orleans French Quarter will be closed for refurbishment work starting on Monday 13th April:

"Guests staying at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter should note that the hotel's bus stop will be undergoing a refurbishment starting April 13. During this refurbishment, the bus stop (which serves the entire resort) will be temporarily relocated near Building 3."

As of now, the reopening date of the main bus stop has not been confirmed.

Update on 24 April:

The temporary bus stop is in the parking lot behind building 3 (so just on the other side of the main lobby building to where the normal bus stop is located) and they have set up a tented covered area, with seating and some potted plants, for people to wait. I know that the work includes replacing some concrete, but I'm not sure of anything else that might be planned (e.g. a wait-time screen?). See DISboards Port Orleans French Quarter Q&A Thread for a few photos.

Update on 30 April:

The main bus stop at Port Orleans French Quarter will be re-opening tomorrow (1st May) after three weeks of work replacing roadway concrete.

I'll be curious to see what sort of "refurbishment" would necessitate temporarily relocating the entire (meaning both sections) bus stop to get it done. Maybe expanding it to accommodate the newer articulated buses? I'm all for anything that will help move people more efficiently on the bus system.

Hello, has there been any more update on what is happening at the station?

I rang last night to ask and the person on the phone said the bus station is running as normal.

what updates have been carried out?

Thanks

I've not heard that the work has been completed, but I've asked someone who's there at the moment to check.

The temporary bus stop is in the parking lot behind building 3 (so just on the other side of the main lobby building to where the normal bus stop is located) and they have set up a tented covered area, with seating and some potted plants, for people to wait.

Oh, and just in case anyone was wondering, they didn't add a wait-time TV screen, the work was all concrete replacement and some re-painting.
