The City of Providence has released a Request for Proposals for Design Services for Bus Shelters and Related Pedestrian Amenity Improvements along Atwells Avenue, Charles Street, Cranston Street, and Smith Street.
The selected consultant or team of consultants will work with the City and RIPTA to create unique, artistically designed bus shelters and other pedestrian amenities— such as landscaping, public art, trash receptacles, and bike racks—along each corridor. The new bus shelters and associated pedestrian amenities will reflect each corridor’s design and cultural heritage and will ultimately contribute to a cohesive visual identity for each of the four corridors.
The deadline for proposals is November 7, 2011. The full Request for Proposals can be found online at www.providenceplanning.org .
