Tolar Manufacturing Company received its third consecutive multi-year contract to supply and install transit shelters and solar solutions that power self-contained LED illumination, real-time information, and security devices for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).
The over $4 million contract was awarded to Tolar Manufacturing after a comprehensive evaluation process.
Building on 28 years of experience, Tolar Manufacturing has been designing and fabricating transit shelters for DART since 2008.
