A good practical design.

The proposed bus stop assumes a location within an urban environment comparable with downtown St. Lake City. The shelter plan is approximately 16’-9”(L) x 5’-4”(W) x 10’-0”(H) that provides multiple points of access to sitting or standing areas offering protection from the weather. Riders have visibility of their surroundings from each direction of adjacent sidewalks and the street.
The material composition of the shelter is a structural steel tube frame painted with high gloss polyurethane finish. The steel frame is either infilled with tinted laminated glazing or ornamental brick. The roof is composed of structural galvanized steel panels with rigid insulation and 5V crimp metal roofing. The roof system supports a series of Uni-Solar photovoltaic panels supplying power for (6) LED architectural downlights, LED bus route information / mapping, and IT equipment for WIFI connection.
The design solution for the bus stop is a secure enclosure for passengers and an identifiable icon within the community. The objective of the architecture is to encourage citizens to utilize the many advantages of public transportation.
