Bus shelters possible

Some transit riders in Coldstream could be in for a little shelter from the elements.

Some transit riders in Coldstream could be in for a little shelter from the elements.

Coldstream and BC Transit are looking into installing two shelters at the busiest and most prominent locations: on College Way (east of Highway 6) and on Kalamalka Road (outside Cenotaph Park).

“The installation of bus shelters at these two locations will provide riders a reprieve from the weather conditions during their wait and may assist with increasing ridership, especially on more inclement days,” said Michael Baker, Coldstream’s director of infrastructure services.

The district can apply for provincial funding to offset the cost of a standardized shelter, which would then only cost the district 53.3 per cent of the shelter purchase.

Two of the options of shelters being looked at carry costs of $9,778 and $11,357.

Coldstream is responsible for upkeep and maintenance of the shelters.
