Work on our bus shelter rehabilitation project is well underway. Shelters for Routes 19, 8, 9, 308, 309, 310 & 14 have been completed, and we are working our way through the remaining routes. Later this month, we will begin replacing old trash receptacles with new ones and begin the installation of new roof panels.
Eighty new solar panel illuminations lights will be placed in shelters that are tied to city/meter power, eliminating those electric bills. New NexTrip signs featuring next bus arrival information for each stop will be installed along with rebranded bus stop signs beginning later this month. See a sample below.
NexTrip signs to be installed at each stop feature 3 different methods passengers can use to access Omnitrans real time bus arrival information
