Simple Stop

Submitted by andrew on August 17, 2009

The design of this bus stop emphasizes a simple and straightforward solution to the site-specific problems presented.

Access: In order to accommodate heavy pedestrian traffic, the bus stop is set back from the street and offers a very open front. Inside there is plenty of room for people to sit and move around as desired. The rear of the bus stop features an open half panel that permits foot traffic from the parking lot behind. A bike rack encourages bike traffic.

Weather: The curved roof protects bus riders from sun, rain and snow and contains troughs (not shown) that drain water away from the structure’s openings. The walls provide basic protection from wind in the winter but are also open enough to ensure a fresh cooling breeze during the summer.

Lighting: On the roof of the bus stop are four solar panels. Although they power the lights of the structure, they also would collect enough energy to power nearby streetlights.

Route Info: For the convenience of bus riders there are two screens that give the current time as well as the arrival time of the next bus.
