35 Revolutionary Transit Rest-Stops

From Heated AdverShelters to Antisocial Public Seating

— July 11, 2012 — Autos
As gas becomes painfully expensive and the environment progressively worn out, revolutionary transit rest stops can facilitate increased ridership in public transit systems all over the world.

Some of the pains of waiting for the bus (or for public transit in general) is its lack of reliability and infrequent service. However, these problems are all easily avoidable. By installing multi-functional bus shelters, a city may be able to attract people out of their cars and onto the sidewalk every morning commute. Some particular shelter concepts worth noting are warming features (key for the winter), Internet and device-charging accessibility (so people have something to do) and ample yet comfortable seating.

Armed with an effective bus stop design, a city-wide face-lift is a measure that is sure to see promising results.
