Metro Transit is committed to providing customers a safe, secure and comfortable experience at the bus stop. We work to improve the customer experience at the bus stop through:

  • Transit information
  • Concrete pads at the front of the bus stop to make it easier to get on and off the bus (ADA pads)
  • Improvements for pedestrians near the bus stop
  • Installing shelters at new locations
  • Improving existing shelters with light or radiant heat
  • Replacing aged shelters
  • Shelter cleaning and maintenance
  • Snow removal at bus stops with shelters

Current Priorities

Enhancing access to opportunity: Metro Transit is adding up to 150 shelters and improving an additional 75 existing shelters with light or heat, focusing on neighborhoods with areas of concentrated poverty.

Replacing aged advertising shelters: Metro Transit recently acquired more than 200 privately owned advertising shelters. Many of these shelters are 30 years old and are in poor condition. Metro Transit is replacing them with new shelters, or has removed those that did not meet the criteria for shelter replacement.

Accessibility: Metro Transit is adding concrete ADA pads at bus stops, improving transit information for customer accessibility, and improving pedestrian accessibility at and around bus stopsMore Info
