sorry mate, but you lost me. i thought the previous design was the best in the comp, but this hi-tech gimmickry just ruins it. its way too pricey, and bus stops are often vandalised. utopian but impractical. you could protect the displays with sheets of plastic, but you would have to ditch the touch screen ability. still a very good bus stop though.

looks like a scene from resident evil minus the zombies.

Maybe Utah transit could build my first proposal in 2009 and upgrade to this design in the future... 2020 by inserting the(OLED & interactive map).
By reusing the structure and most of the components, will save money and support the green design concept (reduce the use of new and raw materials).

This design has the most important element to city dwellers, seating. Many of the other designs thoughtlessly do not.

Bus-Stop “final design”
The future of the bus-stop begins with some simple facts. First, the bus has to stop at the right location to pick up the passengers.
Second, the bus-stop has to support the line that the passengers form to aboard the bus.
Third, make it obvious for everyone to exit to the rear of the bus. Training ourselves to be a better commuters will benefit us with better and reliable service.
This design starts with a name “BUS-STOP” signaling the bus drivers to stop at the right location. The right location is to align the bus door to the portal within the bus-stop. The dots on the floor indicate a place for people to line up. At night the bus-stop will also attract people with it’s glowing lights, providing information and a comfortable bench.
Some might argue that the OLED and interactive map is a expansive materials. I think any new technology at first is costly. However, as designers it is our responsibility to use new materials in a creative way to improve our way of life, visually and functionally.
The design components.
Solar panel ( Photovoltaic ) 30% clear glass opening for light penetration. It will generate electricity to run lights and display panels.
Tri-fold OLED panel will provide a transparent inclosure for the people during the day and at night act as light panel for safety and digital advertisement for entertainment.
‘OLED’ is a thin clear plastic sheet that can act as a light source or a visual display like LCD without a sold back panel. It generates 75% less heat than the standard LED. Therefor, just right amount of heat for the people waiting for the bus at night.
OLED : Organic light emitting diode.
2.Flexible, fold-able and dual display
3.Paper thin display
4.Touch screen panel capable
5.Free viewing angle.
6.Low power consumption
Metal box that holds the standard advertisement on the outside and interactive touch screen map at top and general information below ( w/ weather bus schedules and announcements ) with language options. This wall also act as directional portal wall.
