SCVNews.com | Santa Clarita Transit is installing solar-powered information systems

Read Time:1 Minute, 20 Second

Residents and visitors traveling around the city of Santa Clarita will now enjoy new amenities at nearly five dozen Santa Clarita Transit bus stops.

In keeping with Santa Clarita’s 2025 Strategic Plan theme, “Supporting Public Infrastructure,” the city is in the process of replacing 57 real-time bus information units at bus stops with new, solar-powered systems.

The bus stop improvement project will result in improved real-time bus information units that have longer battery life and the ability to send real-time emergency or public service announcements. In addition, a new Americans with Disabilities Act compliant annunciator will announce the arrival time of the next bus.

The monitors at the updated bus stops include a built-in diagnostic feature that will alert Santa Clarita Transit staff when system maintenance is needed, ensuring early detection of malfunctions and minimizing downtime. Staff will also be able to remotely monitor the status of each unit to ensure proper operation.

About a dozen bus stops have already been updated, and the full project is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.

For more information on the bus stop improvement project, please contact Transportation Manager Adrian Aguilar at (661) 295-6305 or by email at aaguilar@santa-clarita.com.
