Tolar Manufacturing Company announces new contract, administered by Morongo Basin Transit Authority (MBTA), continuing their multi-year relationship to supply transit shelters and related amenities to members of the California Association of Coordinated Transportation (CalACT).
The contract, issued on behalf of the MBTA/CalACT Purchasing Cooperative provides procurement opportunities for extensive shelter options, including Tolar’s legacy Sierra series, among other amenities including benches, information displays, solar solutions, and more.
The MBTA developed this procurement method to save CalACT member agencies time and expense while giving access to additional amenities and shelter bundle options often cost prohibitive to smaller agencies. Each shelter bundle may include UL listed solar illumination, bench, and trash receptacles, with options to add on passenger information and media display kiosks for revenue-generating advertising.
Additional passenger amenity options include provisions for e-paper real time digital displays, pole and shelter-mounted solar lighting systems and wireless control and monitoring for lighting, and other digital amenities and street furniture.
