Rider Transit’s bus stop shelters significantly improve the public transportation experience by providing passengers with a safe and comfortable waiting area, protection during inclement weather and service information. Bus stop shelters are generally located along all bus routes. For the convenience of the passengers, Rider Transit shelters have maps and schedules of the bus routes located inside each shelter.
Rider Transit bus stops are strategically located throughout the Concord and Kannapolis area, making transit more accessible, comfortable, and convenient for all passengers. Each stop is clearly marked with the distinct Rider Transit bus stop signage. Each of the bus stop signs indicates the bus route that is picked up at that particular location.
