During the March 3, 2020 City Council meeting, the new GoRaleigh red bus shelter contract was approved by Council.
The Department of Transportation, Transit Division has installed 10 of the new GoRaleigh red shelters as of March 12.
The new GoRaleigh red bus shelter design recently won an Honor Award for design from the North Carolina American Institute of Architects (AIA). The Honor Award is the highest level of design recognition that the AIA gives to projects.
“Go[Shelter] is the winning entry for a design competition hosted by GoRaleigh Transit and the AIA Triangle Chapter. The brief asked for proposals that re-imagine area bus shelters. Go[Shelter] takes its formal cues from notions of points and connections. As a result, a triangulated shelter evolved. The proposed design challenges regional views of public transportation and encourages discourse via a highly visible network of functional and sculptural art installations. As a result, the public transit system is punctuated along transit corridors throughout the city enlivening and invigorating an unsung urban asset,” AIA.
