About the Next-Gen Shelters
• The flexible modular concept allows scalability to serve differing activity needs tailored to each bus stop, and is designed to reflect the cultural fabric of area parks, neighborhoods, places of interest, and historic sites.
• Nearly all of the contractors used for the Passenger Amenities Program are locally owned business and/or certified DBEs.
• The 1,000th bus shelter features a custom roof with an image of the 1952 graduating class of St. Philip’s College, located in District 2.
