Bus Stop

Why?

Apart from the various issues addressed like efficiency and speed in transport, low cost of infrastructure and maintenance addressed by the design of a conventional bus rapid transit system.

Current Scenario

Current bus stops which lack basic amenities of proper seating, access, signage and information system.

Auto rickshaws taking over bus passengers. One of the reasons for this found out to be the uncertain waiting periods for a bus.

Passengers waiting outside the bus stop – abuse of the bus stop by hawkers and beggars. No lane discipline by the bus drivers usually is the cause of this problem .

 

Socially relevant issues like women safety, child Labour etc. with Ad campaigns showcasing social message and upcoming government programs.

 

Proposed Solutions

  • A simplified design for easy and quick installation.
  • Introducing glow signs to enlighten area for creating secure environment.
  • Introducing guide maps for convenience.
  • Use of easily maintainable material.

Design interventions

  • Access
  • Way-finding
  • Information
  • Facilities
  • Aesthetics
  • Maintenance

 

Solar panels on top of the roof, tapping sun power would take care of the entire needs of lighting up the bus stop and glow signs during the night time.
