Characteristics of A Good Bus Shelter and Its Design


A well designed and built bus shelter or transit shelter is an essential part of any urban transit system or employee shuttle program. A good shelter is one that is low maintenance and is damage-resistant. In addition, an ideal bus shelter is the one that allows visibility, easy access to the bus, and provides a comfortable atmosphere for bus riders. A well-designed, comfortable shelter can make waiting for a bus pleasant — and even interesting.

Characteristics of A Good Bus Shelter and Its Design

Besides resisting vandalism, a well-designed shelter should be easy to keep clean. A transit shelter can be designed to reflect the neighborhood in which it is located. This can be accomplished through the use of local materials in the design, such as a brick or stone wainscot. Built to order bus shelters can be adapted to reflect the unique characteristics of the area in which they are located. Par-Kut bus shelters can be custom-designed and adapted to meet your needs. Steel bus shelters are painted in customer’s choice of color, while aluminum bus shelters have standard finishes of bronze, or white, or clear anodized. Par-Kut bus shelters can be fully enclosed and can also include custom roofs, doors, benches and electric light and radiant heaters.

The bus shelters can either be pre-assembled to save customer’s labor costs for on-site assembly, or panelized and “pre-engineered” for on-site assembly by the customer’s own crew.
