Urban Solar to supply bus stop lighting to OmniTrans

Urban Solar is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract to supply its PV Stop lighting systems to OmniTrans in San Bernardino, CA after successfully winning a competitive solicitation.

OmniTrans chose Urban Solar’s PV Stop to increase safety for riders, further enhancing its bus stop amenities. The PV Stop is a UL-Listed solar-powered system with high intensity LED lighting.

One hundred of Urban Solar’s PV Stops were successfully installed here in 2012, and this award will add to the transportation authority’s current lighting units installed at bus stops along major transit corridors.

Urban Solar has worked with OmniTrans in the past and will continue to provide reliable solar powered safety and security lighting for the riders of OmniTrans.
