Austin, Texas

Project

In May 2019, Tolar Manufacturing Company, through installation contractor Muniz Concrete and Contracting, was awarded a competitive procurement to supply 125 transit shelters to Capital Metro in Austin, TX.

The shelters, based on Tolar Manufacturing’s Signature series, are in support of Capital Metro’s Coordinated Bus Stop Street Furniture Program. As stated by Capital Metro the goal of the Program is to deliver uniquely attractive, functional street furniture of exceptional design quality that provides a variety of public services across the Authority’s service area.

The 125 Tolar-built non-advertising bus stop shelters will be 12 feet in length and provide weather-protecting radius roof and perforated metal walls designed to be installed at either the front or rear of the shelter as well as on each end, for best wind protection. The shelters also incorporate perforated metal benches with anti-vagrant bars and highly visible branding banner.

“For the past several years we have been fortunate to supply passenger shelters for Capital Metro,” commented Scott Williams, Tolar Manufacturing Business Development Manager. “This latest purchase includes improvements and design options based on customer and agency feedback.  We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the process.”
