Upgrades Coming to City Bus Stops

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Commuters may soon notice welcome improvements to major bus stops across the city.

The Tucson Department of Transportation has begun a remodeling project that will update 55 bus shelters in areas with high ridership and great need.

Crews are in the very early stages of the project, which some community members have been pushing for a long time.

With over 2,000 bus stops throughout the city, many are in need of repairs and updates.

Tucson Department of Transportation is implementing 50 solar powered lights at these selected stops, as well as expanded shade to shelter riders from the sun.

The new lighting fixtures will make it safer for riders to keep an eye on their surroundings while waiting for a bus. For bus drivers, it will be easier to see if a person is waiting to get picked up at a stop.

Customers are encouraged to call Sun Tran at 520-792-2222 if they see a stop in need of attention or updates.

Stay posted on all Tucson Department of Transportation news on the official website.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
