WHEN: 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 6, 2019

WHERE: Streetcar stop at Franklin and El Paso streets

WHY: Sun Metro has begun installing 27 streetcar shelters along the nearly 5-mile route. The installation conducted by Pride General Contractors of El Paso should be completed by the end of the month.

The shelters are funded through an approximate $35,000 federal grant and will provide riders with a comfortable place to catch a streetcar. The shelters will also showcase the new extended summer streetcar operating hours and all the stops to help riders plan their trip.

This project is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance our comprehensive regional transportation system.
