At the corner of San Juan Ave and Tyndale Ave in Saanich, there is a BC transit stop which used to look like this:
Tuesday August 9, 2016, a solar bus stop was installed – to our knowledge a first for Saanich, BC! Included are solar panels on the roof and low-wattage bright LED lighting.
Some models of transit shelters include USB ports for phone charging. The contractor, Lucid Management Group of Vancouver, stated that there are about a dozen more shelters planned in the Victoria area. Great job Saanich and LMG!
