Tolar Manufacturing Company delivered 15 solar-powered bus shelters to South Central Transit Authority (SCTA) in Lancaster, Pa. The shelters are being placed throughout the authority’s service area, which is served by 93 fixed-route buses.

The two public transit systems SCTA manages, Berks Area Regional Transportation Authority (BARTA) and Red Rose Transit Authority (RRTA), together carry approximately 4.5 million passengers annually. Four of the 15 shelters will be installed in the Reading, Pa. area within the next month.

Based on Tolar Manufacturing’s popular Niagara Shelter series, the bus shelters range in length from eight-feet to 12-feet to accommodate passengers traveling throughout Lancaster and Berks Counties. Each shelter is customized with wind-blocking clear glass walls, and the highly utilized bus stops include media display kiosks with important passenger information.

In addition to the integrated benches and post mounted trash bins, all the shelters will include solar-powered ad kiosk lighting provided by Urban Solar, which provides the added effect of ambient lighting for the safety and security of passengers traveling at night.
