Amarillo unveils new bus shelters


Those who use free public transportation provided by Amarillo City Transit will notice an upgrade at several city bus stop locations.

Amarillo City Transit (ACT) is installing seven new bus shelters along the ACT route system.

The Transit Amenities Replacement Project will replace seven shelters and address Americans With Disabilities Act accessibility in 13 locations along the ACT route structure.  The shelters were manufactured by Brasco International and feature an open-face concept with solar-powered lighting, bench seating and trash receptacles. The shelters are made of perforated aluminum, which is durable and ensures visibility while providing protection from the sun and wind. At this time, not every location on ACT routes will receive replacement shelters.

“We are excited about the opportunity to improve the safety and accessibility of our services provided to our passengers,” said ACT Director Marita Wellage-Reiley. “We are committed to improving access to all ACT locations and will seek funding opportunities to improve sidewalks and bus stop waiting areas.”
