Bus shelters are small structures designed to provide shelter and comfort to passengers waiting for buses. Located along bus routes, they can range from simple, unenclosed structures to more elaborate structures with seating, lighting and other amenities. Bus shelters are designed to protect passengers from the elements, including rain, wind and sun, and often feature transparent walls or roofs to allow for visibility of approaching buses. They may also include features such as benches, trash receptacles, and signage to make the waiting experience more comfortable and informative for passengers. Overall, bus shelters play an important role in promoting the use of public transportation by providing a safe, comfortable and convenient waiting area for bus passengers.
