Bus stops are the primary means that Phoenix transit passengers connect with our service. As the largest provider of transit service in the Valley upkeep of stops and transit furniture is a high priority.
Currently the City of Phoenix oversees:
• 4262 bus stops
• 2,482 have passenger shelters (58 %)
• 1,490 standard shelters, 992 advertising shelters
Bus stops come in many forms, with some being a sign only, others are built with shaded benches; others have shade shelters and include space for advertising or transit messages.
Currently the cost of a shade shelter can range from $6,700 to $16,000 depending on the shape and materials used for the structure, and the amount of concrete foundation required to support it. Many times, the kind of shelter, or whether or not a shelter can even be placed, is based on the area around a bus stop — whether there is private property nearby or even enough land to build.
