Sounds like a good idea, aesthetically very smart.

Very nice concept. What about accessibility?

why adding stairs - this keeps it from being barrier-free... also, have a look at the new bus stops in San Francisco, they also use solar energy to power the integrated electronic devices of the bus stop.

The character leaning up against the structure further highlights the problem with stairs. It discourages people from going up them. Unfortunately, the enclosed waiting area feels cramped and could easily become messy.

I rode the bus for over 2 years, until they canceled the line from my house to my school. This would have been amazing to have while waiting for the bus! I love the idea of the shaded seating area, plus the area to protect you from the elements if need be. The solar panels to help support the stop in a "green" way is awesome, too.

This is very good and it also looks cost effective. Good shelter during the rainy period and easy to clean as well. it also looks well made to suit disabled travellers It also doesn't have too much glasses.

I like it. It works! Hope the neighbors do to.

much more elegant than most designs, yet loses some utility in that attempt.

solar bus stop

Submitted by Jmeres on July 29, 2009

The Solar Bus Stop is designed to optimize sunlight throughout the day and throughout the year. The bus stop consists of a shaded outdoor space adjacent to an enclosed waiting space for the winter months. Layered solar shading devices cover the bus stop and contain solar panels to store energy for night use.
