New Bus Shelter program

The Passenger Bus Shelter Program is an initiative to install bus shelters throughout the METRO service area. The program consists of the design and construction of new shelter foundations, as well as the fabrication and installation of standard passenger bus shelters. This program reinforces METRO’s commitment to reinvesting in the agency’s bus system backbone. Public response has been very positive. Installation of shelters has been shown to increase ridership at a given bus stop by an average of 20 additional riders per day. Bus shelters provide patrons both safety and protection from the elements.

For a bus stop to qualify for shelter placement, one or more of the following criteria must be met:

  • Boardings (ridership) (35+daily)
  • Proximity to other routes-transfers
  • Proximity to activity centers – areas of high population or employment
  • Elderly/Physically Challenged Patrons
  • Safety issues – lighting and crime

You may request for a new bus shelter or bus stop to be placed in your area. We appreciate any reporting about a problem or concern with an existing shelter on bus stop via the following:
