Tolar Manufacturing Company delivers sleek and modern BRT stations and bus stop shelters for Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority


Tolar Manufacturing Company announced today it has completed the delivery of 16 bus rapid transit (BRT) stations and an additional 10 bus stop shelters for Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) in San Jose, California. The shelters are now installed along VTA’s new and exciting seven-mile Alum Rock-Santa Clara Bus Rapid Transit corridor and throughout the city’s downtown core.

The 47-ft to 51-ft purpose-built BRT shelters reflect the character of the surrounding business corridor with stylishly modern sleek lines, brushed stainless steel cladding and rail barriers. Weather protective walls and beautiful angled glass roofs incorporate lively public art elements that extend through to the ground. State-of-the-art amenities include real-time information in oversized LED digital displays, closed-circuit 24/7 security cameras, enhanced under-roof passenger security lighting, and light poles equipped with LED next bus arrival readers. Four of the seventeen BRT shelters are built directly on the boulevard median adding to the complexity of the project.

Tolar Manufacturing also fabricated ten, 12-ft to 19-ft bus stop shelters designed to tie-in with the BRT station look and feel creating a cohesive image for VTA. These free-standing bus stop shelters incorporate angled polycarbonate roof panels, aluminum support poles, seating, and security cameras. Some of the stops also include oversized transit information displays.

“This has been a fascinating and innovative project,” stated Kerry Berlin, Business Development Manager for Tolar Manufacturing. “It’s been a team effort, working with project designers, engineering firms and VTA to bring the BRT stations to completion.”
