Central Ohio Transit Authority Bus Rapid Transit Project
As a part of the Central Ohio Transit Authority’s (COTA) Cleveland Avenue BRT project, Brasco was selected to provide a custom shelter and marker for the new line's prototype. In partnership with COTA and OHM Architects, the new BRT shelters will go live in January of 2018. The shelters, fabricated completely in aluminum, will be 28 feet long and feature a matching bench, leaning rail and security lighting. The markers, also made in aluminum, will stand 18 feet tall with an illuminated logo, three-different lighting frequencies and LCD screens for updated schedules and route info.
COTA first began working to bring a BRT line to Cleveland Avenue back in 2010. Cleveland Avenue bus route serves as the second busiest route in the system averaging nearly 4,800 weekday riders. The new BRT system will bring many improvements and benefits such as more travel options for corridor residents, visitors and customers as well as travel time savings of approximately 21 percent.
