The city worked with MM Creative to implement the latter's winning idea from a regional CAPS competition. The transit shelter on Derby Street features a sizable insulated roof to better control temperatures. MM Creative designed its CAPS with adjustable lighting, seats, and ventilation for customized experiences. Penrith also has opportunities to easily add transit card readers, solar panels, and Wi-Fi.
The city found a 4-degree Celsius decrease in average CAPS temperatures compared to traditional transit shelters.
