Shelter Design

Designs and features

Metro Transit has an array of shelter sizes, all of which provide shelter, seating, and detailed transit information.  

To provide durability, shelters are made of anodized aluminum and tempered safety glass. 

Shelter glass features a design (called frit glass) that deters vandalism.

Shelter walls typically come within 4 to 8 inches off the ground. This is needed so the shelter height and slope can be adjusted based on ground conditions and  makes the site easier to clean and remove snow. 

Most shelters have a bench and backrest. Benches are made of metal for durability.

Shelters are compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).
