A bus stop in Munhall, at the corner of Route 837 and Hilltop Street, was voted the second worst bus stop in America.

A website's voters have named a Port Authority bus stop in Munhall as the second worst in America.

The stop is wedged between the busy East Eighth Street, near Hilltop Street, and a steep hill leading to railroad tracks.

Streetsblog USA, a national transit blog, hosts the America's Sorriest Bus Stop Tournament annually. It's a bracket-style competition that lets voters choose the worst bus stop in the country.

The Munhall stop beat out stops in Indianapolis, Omaha, Neb., and Englewood, N.J.

Ultimately, though, a bus stop in Seattle, which is also stationed between a high-speed roadway and railroad tracks, beat out Munhall for the worst bus stop in the country.

The Munhall bus stop got 43 percent of the vote, with 476, while the Seattle bus stop got 57 percent, at 634.

“Port Authority is always looking to improve the safety and accessibility of our bus stops and stations with the limited resources at our disposal,” spokesman Adam Brandolph said in an email.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
