Roswell constructing new MARTA bus stops

Roswell is spending $250,000 on bus stop improvements, part of a $1.6 million allotment through the Atlanta Regional Commission.

The city will be the first to install a unique bus shelter design free of advertising at 10 bus stops. The shelters provide protection from the weather, and include a bench, a trash can and a bike rack. Each shelter will also display bus route information and schedules.

One bus stop at Holcomb Bridge Road and Ga. 400 includes a bike locker which allows a bicycle to be locked inside a compartment and protected from the weather.
