BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Capital Area Transit System plans to spend up to $250,000 for 20 shelters for bus riders in Baton Rouge.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1qcLCkq) the bus system had promised to add about 100 new bus-stop shelters during its 2012 campaign for a tax.

The system, known has CATS, already has delivered on promises of new routes and expanded service.

The purchase will bring the system’s total purchase of shelters to 40.

CATS CEO Bob Mirabito says the first eight are under construction and should be finished within a month.
