Renovated shelter to be Belle Isle pedicab stop
Detroit — A newly renovated bus shelter is expected to serve as a stop for pedicabs and horse-and-carriage rides on Detroit’s Belle Isle.
The shelter overhaul took place this month under a partnership involving the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the State Historic Preservation Office and the Detroit Training Institute of Technology. Students were called on to do renovation work.
The shelter once served as a bus stop for island visitors. The renovation includes a new roof. The original poles and concrete, which are in good condition, will remain in place.
The Detroit Training Institute of Technology, established in 2006, combines classroom training with hands-on learning experiences to prepare students for occupations in the building trades.
Bike rentals also are available on the island this summer.
