New Solar Lit Shelters




We’ve listened – again! BATA is in the process of installing 14 new bus shelters in key locations along its routes. Due to be fully installed by the end of May, these shelters will allow for a more enjoyable riding experience, especially in inclement weather. The shelters are built in two sizes: 6’ x 10’ and 4’ x 8’. The larger model will address accessibility needs while providing riders a more comfortable environment. The smaller model will add convenience, allowing us to provide passengers access in areas with greater space restrictions.


In addition, riders will have access to system-wide maps and brochures inside each shelter, providing our passengers with information as it is needed.


The new glass shelters will be solar lit for energy efficiency and cleaned on a regular basis.


Current locations for the shelter installations include the following:


Route 10: Suttons Bay

Shady Lane Market


Route 11: Glen Arbor
