Creating a Sense of Place™ since 1991
Celebrating 30 years, Tolar Manufacturing Company leverages its experience and forward-thinking functional design to continually develop new ways to connect passengers with buses. “Our mission is to connect communities throughout North America by creating a unique at-stop experience that creates a connected sense of place for passengers,” says Patrick Merrick, EVP at Tolar Manufacturing Company, Inc.
The company’s SmartPlace™ shelters connect communities and people with at-stop digital solutions that address growing passenger expectations. Passengers connect through real-time signage, digital displays, free-standing kiosks, USB charging stations, cameras, two-way communication, wi-fi, and remote monitoring; all powered by either 110V power or our solar solutions.
We invite you to connect with Patrick and Scott in Booth 3643 and share your vision for your next bus shelter project.
