Colorful_Utah_Bus_Stop

Submitted by akouskiniko on September 25, 2009

Imagine a bus stop full of beautiful colors and pleasant smells as plants/flowers have the possibility to grow vertically on the structure of it and its roof is used as a water-collector for the flowers…

…a bus stop which is constructed of non-toxic/recycled materials and is energy-free by the use of photovoltaic panels on top of it…

…a bus stop which uses ‘air-curtains’ attached to its roof thusly providing a cozy atmosphere (hot air) during winter and a comfortable atmosphere (cool air) during summer. Specially designed folded glass panels also protect passengers from heavy side-rain/wind or hot sun.

Hydraulic bars, placed at the front of the bus stop, gently move up/down when a bus arrives/departs, and remain still if a high speed vehicle/bus approaches. Screens – speakers inform passengers about the bus routes and play music creating a relaxing ‘waiting mode’.

Finally lights and vibrating seats inform passengers having a hearing/visual problem that a bus approaches…
