Posted on February 19, 2013

As part of an ongoing effort to enhance passenger amenities, Sun Metro has begun the installation of 71 new bus shelters throughout El Paso, Texas.

Beginning this month passengers will see the addition of 71 new bus shelters over the next several months. Currently about 20 of these new shelters, manufactured by Brasco, have been built and more becoming available each day.

In addition to the placement of the shelter Sun Metro is working on shelter amenities and sidewalk enhancements to improve accessibility around the shelters.

Sun Metro expects the addition of these shelters to help further improve passengers’ transit experiences. Recently, Sun Metro completed the addition or replacement of about 175 shelters.

Passengers at each of the impacted stops are asked to please be patient during this transition period. Sun Metro currently maintains more than 300 shelters throughout El Paso.
