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.
