Rapid Transit Stations

So there's a new rapid transit line that opened in my city in April with several new stations that all have major connections to neighbourhoods via bus terminals or connecting pedestrian paths.
The first several new station submissions were approved quite fast. However, I'm getting a lot more issues trying to have the last few transit stations approved and in the game. I've had it denied for a plethora of reasons that include the following:
- Does not meet acceptance criteria (This is the most common one I get, but man...it doesn't expand beyond that. Like, why doesn't it meet it?)
- Generic store or restaurant (it's not even a store or restaurant...)
- Temporary display (it's a permanent structure)
- Obstructs emergency services

Since the photos didn't post the first time...
Maybe try again when you don't have upgrades? Upgrades are like a double edged sword - it'll make things get processed faster but it also means it may get processed by people who aren't familiar with your area. Generally transit stations with a large sign stating the station name will get through easy, maybe to some non-local reviewers, your nomination looked like a generic bus stop.
Worthwhile trying again, if it comes down to it, maybe focus on the station name a bit more.
The guidelines state:
Transit stations connect and unite people around the world. Submit transportation hubs (like Grand Central Station), but not every single small transit stop (like a subway station or a bus stop).
Looking at your photos (hint: replace the *** with the word "s h o t" and it will work), and the URL supplied: https://winnipegtransit.com/en/service/blue-rapid-transit/
These just look like ordinary bus stops, there is nothing special about them and they would not be considered major transit hubs, therefore they would not be eligible.
If you can show why they would be considered notable transportation hubs, rather than just a simple bus stop, then you might have a better chance of getting it approved.
This looks more like a small transit stop than a transportation hub from the photos and link.
