CATS approves 20 new bus stop shelters
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.
