Clear & Comfortable

Submitted by jbaer on September 26, 2009

As a frequent bus rider in college, one thing I found lacking in bus stops was a design that is appealing, but still provides adequate shelter from the elements. This is especially a concern during Utah winters. Hence, this stop has glass panels enclosing a seating area. To avoid heat buildup during warmer months, panels may be opened to allow air to pass through, or riders may wait in front of the enclosure, under the fabric canopy that shades from summer sun. A fabric roof over the enclosure allows for ventilation year round while preventing cold winter winds from chilling passengers by allowing them to be directed from the sides to the front of the stop. Glass panels could be engraved with designs and graphics, similar to some MAX line stops. These could include UTA signage, route numbers, contact information for UTA, and more. Images are shown in June.
