COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT) is installing solar lighting at bus stops that need a little extra light when it’s dark outside. The LED solar lights have been installed at 43 stops so far with more on the way. The lights come on automatically as it gets dark and become brighter when a motion sensor detects someone near the bus stop. MMT collected recommendations from bus drivers and passengers about which stops need more light. Adding additional lighting at bus stops enhances safety and security and helps drivers see waiting passengers in low light conditions. If you would like to request solar lighting at a bus stop, please contact Mountain Metro via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 385-RIDE.
