CATS officials approved a purchase this week that should sit well with some of their customers.
The CATS board approved the purchase of 20 new benches on Tuesday, but these wont be just regular benches.
They will be solar-powered covered bus shelters.
CATS plans to put these new shelters along Florida Boulevard, Scenic Highway and Harding Boulevard.
CATS promised customers in 2012 that they will build about 100 lit shelters at bus stops.
To date only 40 have been completed.
Officials say that the overall purchase of these shelters will be more than $182, 000, but it won’t cost you a dime.
Construction of these shelters were all made possible by a federal grant.
