Interesting Bus-Stops around the World

By Village Mayor • Oct 14th, 2008 • Category: Architecture, Latest Post

I believe that every one of us has waited for a bus in a bus-stop at least one time in our lifetimes. And I am pretty sure that 99% of them were absolutely dull and boring. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Look at these interesting bus stops, and if you happen to see one too, don’t forget to take a picture and send it to us.

Probably the most advanced bus-stop on this list – fully enclosed with air conditioning. It stands near Burj al Arab and Wild Wadi (water theme park).

I like those old massive works like this bus-stop. Taken from cab window : 50′s car with original 1930′s bus-stop behind.

Such tubes are all over Curitiba, and the only way to get on and off buses is from inside these tubes.

It looks pretty neat. This is a new look of Scottsdale’s bus-stops, made of metal.

Bus-Stop in Changzhou, China

The best one, just a sign put in a pile of straw. No wonder why – it stands near a village, and creative villagers must have built it. If you zoom in, you see that it’s a “Coach Station”.

Bus-Stop in Yemin Orde, Israel

A prize for the best bus-stop design goes to this one. “Created in 2002 by award-winning artist Dennis Oppenheim, the twisting and arching perforated steel structure depicts the metamorphosis of a bus becoming a house. Fans adore its whimsy and its one-of-a-kind appeal.”

Bus-Stop in Volgograd, Russia

A heritage from Soviet Era again, looks like a hat to me.

Bus-Stop in Wellington, New Zealand

A childish bus-stop with zoo animals. A good idea how to transform a boring bus-stop into something colorful and interesting.
