The Regional Transit Service (RTS), University of Rochester Medical Center and College Town celebrated the opening of six state-of-the-art transit stations in New York. These new high tech stations were custom designed and constructed in partnership with Brasco International, Inc., Bergmann Associates and The Pike Co., to support the high congested campus area.
“Thanks to Representative Slaughter and our strong partnership with the University of Rochester, our customers now have six new, high-tech bus stations that will make it easier for them to enjoy the ride,” said Bill Carpenter, CEO of RTS.
Some of the new additions feature a back-to-back layout with passenger waiting in the front and bicycle parking in the rear of the structure. Commuters are provided with ultimate weather protection from wind, rain and snow under the all glass gullwing style roof, tinted to shield against intense sunlight. Additional features include benches, leaning rails, LED security lighting and heating for comfort.
“By spreading the stations around the URMC campus and College Town, transit will be more easily accessible to customers at our second busiest destination.”
