This bus stop design by Nathan M. Schneider is meant to attract commuters to promote public transportation and help reduce air pollution.

The canopy of the bus stop is futuristic with an attractive shape and made from acrylic glass, steel and concrete. While the seating area is open, it still provides shade during all types of weather conditions.

The bench itself is made from multi-layered foam that ensures utmost comfort during waiting periods.

Implications - Consumers are looking for an element of style in all of the products they purchase. Shoppers in modern society are attracted to function with aesthetics; not just either or. Companies could develop more items like this in order to attract a wider audience.
