'LA Metro' has launched a new line of smartphone-integrated transit stops that help keep commuters connected. For those who use public transit to get to work, it can be difficult to stay in the loop. These connected bus shelters ensure that commuters are never left without a reliable source of communication.

The digitized transit stops went live this summer and have already generated a great deal of public support. Each stop features phone utility suites, free WiFi and charging stations. These connected bus shelters not only help consumers power up their devices but also provide information on bus schedules and slowdowns. These features ensure that commuters are able to stay connected while they travel throughout the city.

Currently there are only two connected bus shelters in operation. However, the city has already announced plans to extend the program to additional transit stops.
