  • Abstract:
    This initiative sought to demonstrate existing commercially available transportation technologies for transit customer amenities that could significantly enhance transit experience and attract more riders – therefore making the Capital District Transportation Authority service more attractive, safe, and sustainable. CDTA installed solar-powered street transit amenities on a 2.5-mile section of Central Avenue in Albany, NY, located between Lark Street and the Albany city line to the West. Amenities installed were four (4) i-Shelter Solar Shelter Lighting systems, twenty-five (25) i-Stop solar-powered bus stop signs, and ten (10) BigBelly Cordless Compaction Systems. BigBelly Cordless Compaction Systems were installed at the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stations located within the area of the proposal, i-Shelter Solar Shelter Lighting were installed at existing bus shelters located within the proposal area, and i-Stops were installed at all the existing bus stops within the proposal area that were not planned to become BRT stations and did not have a shelter. Project partners have been happy with the performance and feedback of the BigBelly systems and the solar shelters. The solar-powered bus stops signs have proven too expensive to maintain and too vulnerable to vandalism for the benefits they provide. Therefore, project partners are open to expanding their BigBelly and solar shelter infrastructure, but will not be expanding the i-Stop network along the Central Avenue corridor.
