Hampton Roads begins new shelter installations

Posted on November 28, 2011

NORFOLK, Va. — The first of 200 to 250 new Hampton Roads Transit  shelters are now being installed along the busiest bus routes to shield customers from the weather and provide a place to sit while waiting for their ride, according to the Virginian-Pilot.

In addition, the agency is replacing all 3,500 bus stop signs. The new signs, for the first time, will provide route and schedule information. Both the shelter and bus stop signs are being paid for with federal grants — $2.3 million for the shelters and $1.9 million for the signs over the next two to three years.
