Planning and Development


CATS is making major improvements to your transit system including planning of new shelters and transfer hubs. First is a description bus shelter refurbishment and new shelter installation efforts. Below that are galleries of conceptual design images developed by a consulting architect for possible new transfer hub sites.

New Bus Shelters

Photo of concrete form preparation for new bus shelter.CATS is actively renovating and replacing bus shelters across our service area. This process is complicated slightly because of partner agencies involved along different roadway corridors. For example, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) is our partner for shelters along State Highways such as Florida Boulevard. The City-Parish Government is our partner for shelters along local streets. Most locations also require written approval from adjacent property owners. As we close out 2015, CATS has achieved the following:

  • 30 completed shelters
  • 77 refurbished shelters
  • 14 ongoing new shelter installs
  • 20 awaiting Board approval (Partial TAP funding)
  • 32 proposed TAP* shelters

* TAP refers the the Department of Transportation's Transportation Alternatives Program and is grant funding for transit shelters.
