Unusual Bus Stops Around The World Ross Kimbarovsky | May 21st, 2008

I used to commute by train to my office in the center of Chicago. While walking from the train, I passed many bus stops. In the United States, most bus stops look like the photo below (a bus stop in Chicago).

Recently, I saw a photo of a bus stop in Japan (below) which I think you’ll agree is unusual. It never ceases to amaze that creativity in product design and architecture is without limits.

A few other examples from other countries are below. The photo on the left is a bus stop in the UK (BBC Photo). The photo on the right is a stop in Spain – the Bus Station — designed by Juston Garcia Rubio. The photo below the UK and Spanish stop is a stop in the former Soviet Union.

My favorite is a working bus stop in Ventura California, which looks like a snake house (below). The Ventura stop was designed by Dennis Oppenheim.

Have you seen other unusual stops worth mentioning?

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!
