Transit Pole Lighting

The vast majority of bus stops in North America are unsheltered. Adding security lighting to these stops is easy with Urban Solar’s suite of transit pole lighting systems. Our systems are cost-effective and feature all the reliability and performance agencies have come to expect from Urban Solar’s shelter lighting systems. All mounting hardware is included for any new or existing transit pole.

PV Stop Max – The Brightest Security Lighting and Real Time Arrival Information for Unsheltered Stops

The most powerful system in the PV Stop family, the PV Stop Max is ideal for northern locations with limited solar energy available during winter months. The PV Stop Max can power 13” and 23” e-paper real time information signs and illuminate a large (~200 ft2) area surrounding a bus stop pole.

  • Solar array tilted at 45 to 55 degrees from horizontal for optimal year-round performance
  • Luminaires can be oriented in any direction independent of the solar array orientation
  • Optional ECM ConnectTM cloud-connected managed lighting and power
  • Long-lasting LiFePO4 battery technology; optional AGM batteries for performance in cold environments
