CHK America Inc. was awarded a contract by Austin’s Capital Metro to assist with the largest service change in their history. Approximately 1,600 bus stops will be replaced and re-branded to generate a simpler bus system resulting in better service, frequency and connectivity, according to the company.

CHK America has designed passenger information solutions for the Austin transit system previously. This newly designed system will deliver information to passengers in a clear and concise format accentuating Capital Metro’s extensive public transportation options. Capital Metro provides bus service at more than 4,000 bus stops throughout Central Texas, with an average of 2.5 million monthly passengers in all modes of transportation.
