Coming Soon! More Shade and New Features
The City’s bus shelters are operated under a contract that expires at the end of 2021, so StreetsLA is developing a successor program, the Sidewalk and Transit Amenities Program (STAP), which will expand and modernize bus shelters across LA. We envision a world-class, self-sustaining program that provides shelter, shade, safety, and comfort with furniture that supports an increased use of transit and alternative transportation, local economic activity and the shared use of City sidewalks.
In July 2021, we showcased new bus shelter technology and sample designs from the top two potential contractors who are competing to operate the new program. At six locations over a two week period, day and night, the public got to see and feel the bus shelters and learn about the features STAP could offer. Watch a 1 min overview of this event from LA CityView's LA This Minute.

Modern shelters offer panels that can change what’s on their digital screens. How fast these change is called the “flip rate.” What do you think about the flip rate in this video?
