BATON ROUGE – The Capital Area Transportation System approved 20 new bus stop shelters with solar powered lighting Tuesday afternoon. They’ll be dispersed along Florida Boulevard, Scenic Highway and Harding Boulevard at a cost of $182,600.

The shelters are similar to those already placed along Baton Rouge streets. They provide seating and limited cover from weather for bus riders.

CATS will pay 20% of the costs, roughly $36,000. Federal grants will pay for the remaining 80%.

There is no time line for the completion of the new shelters. CATS has to first initiate a bidding process for the construction.
