Report Body

g Number

CONCLUSION

 

Administration has received a request to donate a bus shelter in memorial. The location of Elphinstone Street and Qu’Appelle Drive currently has no shelter however, the location warrants a shelter. All costs for purchase and installation are provided by the donator.

 

BACKGROUND

 

Regina Transit provides shelters to provide protection while waiting for a bus. Their primary function is to protect the transit customer from the weather both directly (e.g. rain), and indirectly (e.g. splashing caused by passing cars). A donator has approached the Transit Department wanting to purchase a shelter in memorial. The donator requested that a shelter be placed in the Normandy Heights/River Heights neighbourhood as her mother rode the bus from that area for decades.

 

DISCUSSION

 

The Transit Department has a warrant rating system to determine if locations meet the criteria for a shelter. Transit Administration applied the bus shelter warrant rating system (see Appendix A), to the bus stops in that area and found that the bus stop on Elphinstone Street at Qu’Appelle Drive, northbound, met the warranted criteria. A view of the area can be seen in Appendix B. The shelter that will be put in this location will be similar to the modern style shelters that have been installed at various bus stop locations in the last year. A picture of this type of shelter can be seen in Appendix C.
