The City is pleased to announce that we have begun the installation of sixteen new transit shelters in various locations throughout the City of White Rock.
Currently, four transit shelters have been installed, one at the waterfront along Marine Drive at Bay Street, two along North Bluff and one on High Street. Twelve of the shelters are replacements for existing shelters and four will be installed at brand new locations.
The City entered into an agreement with one of Canada’s largest media companies, Pattison Outdoor permitting advertising on the structures that translates into 16 new transit shelters for the community and additional revenue for the City.
The new shelters offer all glass weather protection for transit commuters to provide better visibility and seating with designated space for wheelchair accessibility. All the transit shelters will include lighting. The City is committed to improving our public amenities and the function and design of the new transit shelters are a great compliment in the streetscape beautification opportunities taking place around the community
Mayor Wayne Baldwin, City of White Rock
“The City is focused on updating and revitalizing our amenities and beautifying our streetscape to make it more comfortable and welcoming for all” said Mayor Baldwin. “This is a terrific example of the City engaging in partnership opportunities with the private sector to deliver positive outcomes for our community.”
