• The green solar powered Transit Shelter bus stop

  • 4.jpgRemember the darkened out bus stop we usually catch in thriller movies, with a hapless victim waiting for the storm to pass while a predator drools nearby? Well, it probably wont be so dark out there anymore, if Hollywood decides to use the Transit Shelter that is. Arato Designs has created this innovative design, a bus stop powered by solar energy. The bus stop has a extra high ceiling with a wide entry and a 360° view of the surroundings. The steel structure wrapped in plastic keeps away electric storms too. By adding 5’ x 5’ modules, the length can easily be increased and decreased too. The solar panels power up the interior and overhead information panels by soaking in the sun, with enough space on the exterior for advertising.

    This sure is one hell of a bus stop to wait at, for storms to pass, for a hungry predator, or just the bus!
