STATELINE, Nev. (AP) - Transportation officials are hailing six new bus shelters along U.S. 50 at South Lake Tahoe that complete the second phase of the California Transit Shelter Project.

The project is designed to reduce dependency on private vehicles through the integration of mass transit, walking and biking. Bike racks and bear-proof trash cans are included at the shelters.

Two of the new shelters are made of pre-fabricated aluminum and glass to match existing shelters. The other four feature a new design and are made of redwood timber and glass.

Each shelter is wired for future installation of a system to alert riders of the estimated arrival of the next bus.

The Tahoe Transportation District says total cost was $212,000.
Additional shelters along Pioneer Trail are scheduled for installation before winter.
