METRO undergoes ‘makeover’ with universally accessible bus stops (Source: KPRC)
HOUSTON – METRO celebrated the completion of 2,500 universally accessible bus stops early in May, marking a huge milestone for transportation equality. METRO is committed to upgrading all of its 9,000 bus stops to be universally accessible — this means when riders choose to use public transportation, their experience will be safer, more comfortable, and they will have better access to health care, school, and work.
This isn’t a small project! We’re talking about more than $130 million invested to help revamp these bus stops.
To get this work done, design engineers had to divide and conquer.
