School Bus Stop Shelters

Jan 27, 2008
If you are offering some form of public transportation system such as a bus network, however limited, it is practically essential that you also provide school bus stop shelters for passengers to use while they are waiting for the service. No matter how regular the bus service, there will still be a wait between the runs, and in inclement weather, passengers will not appreciate having to stand out in the rain or high wind while they wait for the bus to arrive.

If you are installing a number of school bus stop shelters in order to provide comfort for your passengers, there are a number of factors that you will have to consider.

The first thing to think about is the size of the shelters that you need. For limited service networks such as those around an industrial estate where the passenger numbers are relatively small, the school bus stop shelters do not need to be all that big, while on a public bus network, the shelters need to be appropriate to the number of passengers that you expect to see at each stop.

Although school bus stop shelters are maid to order, there are a number of standard features that have been built into the design including the use of corrosion resistant aluminum throughout the framework, and tempered glass for additional safety.

Passengers will typically make most use of the school bus stop shelters during rainy weather, so the most important element of the design is that it is large enough to provide cover to how ever many people are waiting for the bus at any one time. In some environments, such as northern territories where both wind and rain are problems, providing a fully enclosed shelter is advisable, as this provides much better protection for users, and prevents the wind from being too much of a problem. In hotter areas, the bus stop shelter can provide shade to avoid getting burned by the sun while waiting for a bus.

With more and more people turning to public transportation thanks to the environmental benefits that it offers above traveling in a private car. This means an increasing number of passengers, which in time requires greater investment in infrastructure in order to ensure that all the services that customers require are provided to a high standard. With passengers who are being converted into using a public transport network instead of their private car, the main things that it needs to be perceived to offer are convenience and comfort. Factors such as the quality of the school bus stop shelters are absolutely essential.

You should ensure that the shelters offer seating for enough people - this is usually achieved with the installation of a bench that can be integrated into the construction of the unit. Lighting can be added to most designs by using a solar power system that will prevent the need to connect the shelter to the mains electricity, as well as emphasizing the environmentally friendly and sustainable aspects of public transportation systems to the users.
