Shelter Process, Guidelines & Requests

Shelter @ Island Home & Maplewood

KAT knows that covered waiting locations across the city are important to our passengers.  As we continue to expand the number of bus stop locations that have shelters, each location has unique circumstances involving issues of safety, feasibility, and passenger ridership levels.  All requests are carefully evaluated and prioritized  based on these and other factors. Below you will find detailed information about our current process and guidelines as well as our Shelter Request Form.
