The City Council this week authorized an agreement with Bustop Shelters of California Inc. to install bus shelters.
City officials said the agreement will provide attractive and weatherproof shelters for bus commuters. Advertisements on plywood and concrete benches will be replaced with advertisements and public service announcements on shelter panels.
The city will earn about $80,000 during the first year of the contract and a projected $265,415 in the first five years.
City officials have identified 25 stops as suitable for bus shelters. They are primarily along major thoroughfares, including Pacific Coast Highway, Seal Beach Boulevard and Westminster Boulevard.
