New Bus Shelters in Philadelphia

posted Feb 17, 2016, 10:28 AM by Magda Antoniow

We are going to have hundreds of new bus shelters in  Philadelphia over the next five years. 

Rodriguez Consulting was awarded a new contract with TITAN to provide Professional Engineering & Land Surveying Services in the city of Philadelphia to support the installation of new bus shelters throughout the city.  TITAN is providing installation, and maintenance of advertising for Out-of-Home media in 31 North American markets.  This project will result in the replacement of all 300 of the city’s existing bus shelters and will also entail the installation of 300 additional bus shelters around the city in areas with high ridership and the construction of benches at bus stops with lower ridership outside of Center City.

Rodriguez has been working with TITAN on various bus shelter site designs and permitting since June 2015. We are proud to be working with TITAN on this new transportation upgrade for Philadelphia.

Rodriguez's scope involves preforming detailed topographic surveys of existing conditions and preparation of site plans for the proposed bus shelters. Rodriguez utilized a combination of conventional surveying and 3D laser scanning technology to collect extremely detailed and accurate data of the existing site locations. Our surveys were also referenced to the official Philadelphia City Plan house lines and curb lines in order to establish the right-of-way and adjacent roadway widths. Our engineers prepared site design plans for the proposed bus shelters to meet the requirements of the Philadelphia Streets Department.

Rodriguez is excited to be able to utilize our Faro X330 3D scanner and our engineering expertise to be a part of such an exciting project.
