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. In addition to general market shelters, Tolar Manufacturing has developed a customized SmartPlace™ transit shelter solution that includes real-time passenger information, illuminated advertising displays, night lighting, and security cameras, all powered with state-of-the-art ECM-Connect® smart solar technology provided by Urban Solar.

Additionally, Tolar Manufacturing will collaborate with DART on the design of their next generation transit shelters, which will build upon the overall Sense of Place™ being created for the DART community.
