RTS Begins Installing High-Tech Bus Shelters Near Medical Center

The Regional Transit Service (RTS), Rochester, NY, recently began installing six innovative bus shelters that will make up the Mt. Hope Stations Transit Center, located near the University of Rochester Medical Center. Eight RTS routes currently serve the area.
“This project really addresses some unique transit needs in this area,” said RTS Director of Engineering Mark Ballerstein. “We think spreading the station out over the large area of the URMC campus will make transit more easily accessible for employees, patients, residents and students.” 

Station amenities will include bike racks, seating and lean rails, lighting, trash receptacles, video surveillance and heat and Blue Light security systems at designated locations. Digital signage will display messaging and RTS arrival data in real time.
The Mt. Hope Stations Transit Center project is the result of a partnership between RTS and the University of Rochester. An FTA grant will cover 80 percent of the $3 million cost, with 10 percent each coming from New York State DOT and RTS.
