More bus shelters for Annapolis

| February 4, 2015 | 0 Comments

Annapolis-TransitAnnapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides announced that ten additional bus stop shelters have been delivered to the city and the first of the ten shelters was installed last week.

“The recent snow around the installation site is a reminder of the need for these bus stop shelters,” Mayor Pantelides said.  “It is important that the shelters are available for those who depend on Annapolis Transit as part of their daily routine.”

The City has a Request for Proposals (RFP) ready to release in the next few weeks, to solicit proposals from companies for the manufacture and installation of an additional 30 shelters. Once those are in place, the city will have restored all of the 80 original bus stop shelters for transit riders in both the city and county.

The ten shelters were purchased for $49,300 from Tapco, located in Wisconsin, under a nationwide purchasing cooperative.  Last week’s shelter was installed on the east side of Admiral Drive, approximately 700 feet north of Poplar Avenue.  Public Work crews will proceed as quickly as possible to get all ten shelters installed over the next two weeks.
