BATA Bus Stops Get More Improvements

The Bay Area Transportation Authority is making some exciting changes thanks to a millage that passed last year.

They will be adding shelters to more of their bus stops.

A number of existing bus stops will also see improvements such as new benches, bike racks, lighting and even heaters.

BATA says it’s all part of making any wait for a bus more comfortable.

Communications And Development Director Eric Lingaur says, “We’ve also added more way finding to the stops to make it easier to know when the bus is coming, and what route it’s heading on, what stops it’s going to, and the directions and flow. Anything we can do to make it easier and comfortable for people to use public transit.”

Bata says they were able to work on about a dozen before winter hit and have plans for another 10 or so this spring.
