Tolar Manufacturing Co. delivers bus shelters, rapid transit station for Calif. city

Posted on August 10, 2017

Tolar Manufacturing Co. completed the delivery of 16 bus rapid transit (BRT) stations and an additional 10 bus stop shelters for Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) in San Jose, Calif. The shelters are now installed along VTA’s new and exciting seven-mile Alum RockSanta Clara Bus Rapid Transit corridor and throughout the city’s downtown core.

The 47- to 51-foot purpose-built BRT shelters reflect the character of the surrounding business corridor with modern sleek lines, brushed stainless steel cladding, and rail barriers. Weather protective walls and angled glass roofs incorporate public art elements that extend through to the ground. State-of-the-art amenities include real-time information in oversized LED digital displays, closed-circuit 24/7 security cameras, enhanced under-roof passenger security lighting, and light poles equipped with LED next bus arrival readers.

Tolar Manufacturing also fabricated 10, 12- to 19- foot bus stop shelters designed to tie-in with the BRT station look and feel, creating a cohesive image for VTA. These free-standing bus stop shelters incorporate angled polycarbonate roof panels, aluminum support poles, seating, and security cameras. Some of the stops also include oversized transit information displays.
