About 20 people turned out for a public meeting on Saturday to discuss options for the Maori Hill bus shelter at the intersection of Highgate and Drivers Rd.
The shelter was built at the time of the New Zealand and South Seas International Exhibition at Logan Park in 1925-26.
The council wants to remove it due to deterioration, lack of use, and its steel roof reportedly interfering with a cellphone tower.
The council planned to replace it with a modern shelter across the road.
Maori Hill resident Warren Smith, speaking on behalf of a group of concerned residents, rubbished claims the shelter was not used.
"The structure provides shelter for those using the Route 15 southbound ‘Ridge Runner’ bus route, that operates seven days a week."
He was hoping to meet someone at the council to discuss how buses on Route 50 Helensburgh-St Clair Park/Corstorphine could be re-routed to use the shelter too.
