Tidy Stops Mean Happy Riders
The inherent dispersed nature of shelters, stops and stations make waste collection an operational challenge. Factor in the often patchworked assortment of personnel and contractors responsible for this maintenance and it can be nearly impossible to ensure that customers are having a positive experience while waiting or disembarking for their bus, tram or train.
BigBelly Solar’s solution is uniquely positioned to solve many of these headaches by offering additional on-site capacity — making overflows a thing of the past — and combining that with remote monitoring capabilities that let a central office or field personnel get a real-time view of the current situation.
And since BigBelly Solar waste & recycling stations qualify under many federal, state and local grant programs, more and more transit organizations are getting on-board with this program.
The Greater Dayton RTA uses BigBelly to keep their high-frequency stops free of litter and overflowing trash cans.
