The capital city of Tallahassee, Florida has made a three-year commitment to greening its bus stops with Carmanah i-SHELTER and i-STOP solar transit lighting systems. The stand-alone solar powered lighting systems were purchased by the StarMetro transit agency to enhance customer convenience and help increase evening ridership.

Featuring crisp illumination for bus shelters, the i-SHELTER transit lighting system installs easily onto existing shelters to provide a reliable source of light for waiting passengers. The Carmanah i-STOP is a pole-mounted security down light that integrates a passenger-activated bus signal and illuminated schedule into one compact solution. While enhancing convenience and visibility, the i-STOP reduces rider pass-bys and allows for easy viewing of bus schedules in low-light conditions.

With a self-sustaining solar power supply, Carmanah solar solutions produce no greenhouse gases and provide transit agencies with a visible way of implementing environmentally friendly solutions into existing infrastructure. Free of electrical grid connections, Carmanah solar transit lighting solutions install easily and provide agencies with significant cost-saving benefits.
