SunLine Transit installs new bus stop seats

Posted on March 21, 2013

Thousand Palms, Calif.-based SunLine Transit Agency installed the first two “Simme” seats at bus stops throughout the Coachella Valley.

The Simme (pronounced sim-ee) seat is designed to fit at stops where a transit shelter can’t be accommodated because of a lack of space or stops with lower usage. Providing passengers with some seating at these locations will improve the rider’s experience.

The Simme seat is a good solution that maximizes space by offering seating for two customers, as well as incorporating the bus stop sign and route schedule.

An additional 22 Simme Seats have been purchased from Simme LLC of Eugene, Ore., and will be installed over the next few months throughout the Coachella Valley.
