New Bus Stop Signs Coming in 2017
In 2017, you’ll start to see updated Bus Stop Signs on the streets. The signs are:
- Distinctively different from other street signs, with an eye-catching, highly-visible border
- Two-sided, reflective design that’s visible day or night
- Easier-to-read with bolder fonts
The signs keep Bus stop ID numbers, so it’s still easy to check a bus’ arrival time on the Where’s My Bus? app, website, or texting features.
RTS is rolling out newer signs after hearing from both Bus Operators and Customers that the size, shape and reflectivity of RTS “flag style” signs made them hard to see and read. The updated signs address these concerns, and were developed and refined through Bus Operator and Customers feedback.
Installation of the signs will start this winter and should be completed within a year. You’ll first start to see new signs on Route 1, and installation will continue in order by route number.
