Tolar Manufacturing Company was awarded a $7.1 million multi-year contract by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) to build 1,000 bus shelters of various configurations, benches, trash receptacles, leaning rails, solar-powered lighting, and passenger information displays to be located throughout Atlanta and three surrounding metro counties.

The shelters and related amenities are based on the company’s Signature Sunset series with customized elements including distinctive MARTA branding, illumination for added security, and passenger information displays to provide critical route and schedule information. While many stops will get shelters, some that cannot accommodate a shelter footprint will receive other passenger amenities such as, benches, and trash receptacles.

The project of adding 1,000 shelters and related amenities will grow that number exponentially as residents see the value of added comfort and safety at bus stops, according to MARTA and Tolar officials.
