In June 2003, the City of Aspen (CO) installed Carmanah's i-STOPTM solar-powered illuminated bus stops for field trial. These i-STOPTM units are providing this transit authority's passengers with LED security lighting, timetable illumination, as well as a user-operated flashing signal to indicate to the bus operator that a stop is requested.
Lynn Bader, Transit Co-ordinater for the City of Aspen commented "Carmanah's i-STOPTM has helped our authority overcome a safety barrier by offering greater visibility to the operator, thus increasing ridership. The i-STOPTM offers a unique and inexpensive way to reduce rider pass-bys and enhance the overall transit riders' experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this innovative product to any transit authority". Mrs. Bader was also pleased with the customer support provided by Carmanah, stating "Carmanah's Transit Team was dedicated, knowledgeable, and provided flexible product designs that catered to the needs of our transit agency".
