It's more of a legacy. The 2-Barton used to split at numerous points in the route, one of the splits had the bus turnaround on Melvin just past the fire hall, and turn back downtown at Talbot. Melvin was a thought street to Barton and Pottruff prior to the building of the Red Hill, the Barton bus used to cross the Red Hill on Melvin.

Barton is sparsely populated along this stretch, another reason Melvin was the preferred routing.

This was also an electrified route with the trolley buses.
