Tolar Manufacturing Co. was selected for IndyGo’s five-year, 90-plus bus shelter project. The contract was awarded by the Indianapolis Public Transportation Company’s (IndyGo) board in late September.

The majority of the bus shelters will be five-foot-by-10-foot in size and modeled after Tolar Manufacturing’s popular Signature Sunset line. Some shelters will have a larger footprint so as to be incorporated into the agency’s “Super Stops” program.

IndyGo states in a board report that the goal of this purchase is to, “enhance the experience for IndyGo riders by providing shelter from the elements while waiting for the bus.” An important component of the project is the addition of solar lighting for the utmost in passenger safety. Other shelter elements will include benches, advertising displays, and trash receptacles.
