Hundreds of bus shelters closed in NYC

More than a third of bus shelters in New York City were out of commission on Tuesday following the collapse of a bus shelter roof on Staten Island earlier this month.

A corroded bolt reportedly caused the roof to come crashing down.

The city Department of Transportation along with JCDecaux began emergency inspections on Monday.

Similar problems were found in 30 of the approximately 1,000 older-style installations inspected thus far. Another 1,500 inspections will be done by the end of the week.

There are 3,500 bus shelters across the city.

While the shelters are not in operation, the bus route and its stops remain unchanged.
