• City Hall, 222 Meigs St.
• Lawrence and West Madison streets, near Central Park.
• 1319 Tiffin Ave., near the Erie County Juvenile Justice Center.
• Buchanan Street and Hayes Avenue, near Firelands Regional Medical Center.

A $68,000 grant will cover expenses for all four 5-by-12 shelters, each offering concrete floors, seating, a skylight roof and a trash receptacle.
“You want to make public transportation as good as possible for the public” Sandusky Transit administrator Thomas Schwansaid. “There are a lot of times I see people standing out in the snow and rain, waiting for a bus. They need something to stand under”
Numerous delays pushed back the shelters’ debut.
Officials first projected the shelters would arrive about two years ago.
