Tolar Manufacturing Co., through installation contractor Muniz Concrete and Contracting, was awarded a competitive procurement to supply 125 transit shelters to Capital Metro in Austin, Texas.
The shelters, based on Tolar Manufacturing’s Signature series, are in support of Capital Metro’s Coordinated Bus Stop Street Furniture Program. As stated by Capital Metro the goal of the Program is to deliver uniquely attractive, functional street furniture of exceptional design quality that provides a variety of public services across the authority’s service area.

The shelters also incorporate perforated metal benches with anti-vagrant bars and highly visible branding banner.
