Will be installed along bus routes in communities throughout the state


NEWARK, NJ — The NJ TRANSIT Board of Directors today approved the purchase and installation of 175 bus shelters that will improve the commuting experience for bus customers throughout the state. 


“Today’s Board action builds on our ongoing initiative to enhance bus service throughout New Jersey,” said Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chairman Stephen Dilts.  “The installation of these shelters in communities throughout the NJ TRANSIT system will make bus transportation a more viable and attractive option.”   


“Bus shelters provide protection from inclement weather and offer seating, while also helping to make bus stops more easily identifiable to customers,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Richard Sarles.  “This project will enable us to improve the commuting experience for bus riders throughout the state.”


The Board authorized a $1.1 million contract with Handi-Hut, Inc., New Jersey, for the purchase and installation of new bus shelters throughout the state over a three-year period.  The project includes construction of the shelters, concrete pads, and incidental items such as bollards, retaining walls, curbs and curb cuts where needed.


As part of its Bus Stops and Shelters Program, NJ TRANSIT supplies shelters at no cost to the communities that request them, provided they agree to accept responsibility for maintenance and liability.  Since the program’s inception in 1981, NJ TRANSIT has provided more than 2,500 bus shelters to communities. 


The first phase of towns slated to receive the new shelters includes Hamilton, East Windsor, Fort Lee, East Orange, Merchantville, Livingston, Edison, Woodbury, Clayton, Berkeley Township, and North Bergen.


Funding for the project is being provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  The project is expected to create about 11 jobs. 


Construction is expected to begin this fall and be completed in 2012.




NJ TRANSIT is the nation's largest statewide public transportation system providing more than 895,000 weekday trips on 240 bus routes, three light rail lines and 11 commuter rail lines. It is the third largest transit system in the country with 164 rail stations, 60 light rail stations and more than 18,000 bus stops linking major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.
