Tolar Manufacturing Delivers 15 Solar-Powered Bus Shelters and Street Furniture to SCTA

Our partner Tolar Manufacturing Co. has delivered 15 solar-powered bus shelters to the South Central Transit Authority (SCTA) for installation in the Reading, Pennsylvania area within the next month. Based on the popular Niagara Shelter series, these new shelters are customized with wind-blocking clear glass walls, and the highly utilized bus stops include media display kiosks with important passenger information. All the shelters will include solar-powered ad kiosk lighting provided by Urban Solar, which provides the added effect of ambient lighting for the safety and security of passengers traveling at night.
