looks like every bus stop ever designed and built in the UK. trad and unoriginal.

i liked your design because of the way you thought about the elderly and the disabled, not everyone even passes a thought about them so i appreciate that. I also like the bus schedule idea.

An appealing and sensible design.

I like the way the bus stop was designed because there are the sides that enclose the bus stop. I am glad there is a seat because there are people who get tired of waiting and need a rest from all that standing. The bus schedule is very handy when anyone wants to know when the next bus will come. And it is great that there is a digital sign saying when the next bus is coming, it helps when you are waiting.

It's very simple and straight to the issue of mixing modern and retro style of NY metro

I like the digital display that says when the next bus will arrive. I think it is very practical and useful. I think the seats are also a great idea because not enough bus stops have them. I like the glass design because it lets in light and does not make the space look dark. With glass it is easy to see an oncoming bus. The schedule is a great idea.

I wish every bus was 2 minutes away.

The design appears to be very functional, yet misses critical design elements.

It's functional. You even considered easy cleaning. Good job. Though it's not really visionary. I give it 4 stars.

it's a standard contemporary bus stop, but with expensive led displays. not that this is a bad thing, but it's hardly inspirational. There is no real joy, which means it has to be almost perfectly detailed to get points, and because it is highly unlikely that the four thin poles that support the structure could support all of the cantilevering weight, it leaves this design wanting in my opinion.

tradarch: the way i saw the design was to be practical for a city. I felt the design elements suggested would create a large bus stop more like a house or a patio, much like many have been creating. Space on a city street is limited. kavbar: consulting structural engineers will easily produce this design, and LED lights are to display info which many ppl have told me they wished they had

but thank you both for ur comments, =)

It's simple and functional...that's what good design is all about...A suggestion would be to help offset the electrical costs by incorporating some type of decorative solar panels....Otherwise, nicely done!!!

i thought the idea was to design something new not just model something that already exists.waste of time.

To the point. Wheres the Bike rack?
Posted Aug 28, 2009 1:08 PM by DLamb

To address the bike rack questions: adding bike racks was under the design considerations, which means it's an optional feature and doesn't have to be included.

average its ok, i guess im just not seeing how this is much different than whats been done before?

This is a clean design, great use of what limited space there is on city streets. Great planification.

Very intuitive. Design for elderly is a very big plus. Considerate, modern, simple yet efficient. Well done!
Posted Sep 20, 2009 11:09 PM by Richard824

I think this design is very Exotic and yet realistic! Other designs are wonderful but will probably never be approved nor built, because of simple factors such as maintenance and safety. The LED display with the arrival time of the next bus is a wonderful addition to the bus stop because this lets you decide whether or not you wait for the bus.

A Modernized Classic

Submitted by mmarin on July 28, 2009

The design was created with usefulness in mind. The compact design will require a smaller amount of space on the sidewalk; the glass and minimal steel will allow shops and surrounding objects to remain visible to the people and tourists. The left wall is an LED panel which will serve on the outside for advertisement and will have the pertaining bus schedule on the inside. An additional LED panel attached to the roof will provide advanced warning of arriving buses and updates to the commuters. The glass walls and roof are supported by four pipes with spider grips. The bench and armrests are attached to the pipes, allowing space for easy cleaning. The bus stop is ADA accessible and the handrail on the right wall will help the disabled or the elderly stand up and reach the bus safely. Cutting the back wall into three triangles with an angle pointing to the left wall, draws the attention to the information board and subtly directs the flow of traffic. The right wall has an arrow-like pattern made up of small reflective dots; they create a noticeable sign for bus drivers.
