Ribbon cutting for THE Bus bench and shelter amenities

Riders of THE Bus will want to get to their bus stop a little earlier to enjoy a brand new
feature. The Hernando County Transit Division announces a ribbon cutting for THE Bus bench
and shelter amenities. The event will take place Wednesday, January 7, 2015 Wednesday,

from 2 to 2:30 p.m.at 7377 Broad St. in Brooksville at the former Sonic® location near Walmart.

THE Bus has 177 bus stops. Within the coming weeks, 24 benches and five shelters will be
installed throughout the county making the bus stops safer, more visible and more
comfortable. Within five years a total of 45 bus stops will have a bench or shelter.

"We are listening to our riders and accommodating their needs by expanding routes, adding a

new route and getting a newer transit vehicle," Commissioner Nick Nicholson said. "We are

also adding transit amenities which include benches and shelters for the comfort and safety of
our riders."


There was no cost to the taxpayers for this amenity. Instead, advertising will be sold on the

benches and shelters generating revenue for the county. Businesses will have a new
opportunity to gain exposure and target their message to a specific audience. This service will
be handled by Creative Outdoor Advertising.

Ron Pianta, assistant county administrator and Nick Nicholson, county commissioner will
speak at the ribbon cutting event.
