ABOUT 

A new concept bus stop has arrived in Singapore, a demonstration of how ground-up energy and creativity can be harnessed for urban and social innovation.

Conceived by a group of architects from DP Architects (DPA) as a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, the prototype bus stop is designed to “make waiting fun”. It reimagines the daily commuting experience and how people transit, interact, and socialise in this public space. Named "Project Bus Stop", the architects envisaged the new concept bus stop serving beyond its primary function to make waiting for buses a fun and enriching experience for commuters.

This ground-up design solution features a bus-stop with free WiFi; handphone charging points; interactive smart boards that provide content and services such as bus arrival timings, e-books download and journey planner; a green roof; bicycle parking; and even a swing. It also showcases artwork by local illustrator Lee Xin Li.

This experimental project is located along Jurong Gateway Road at Jurong East Central. Its new features will be in operation for a year from August 2016, and the public are encouraged to share their experiences of using the bus stop. The feedback received will help the agencies understand and ascertain the merits and value of the various features for consideration in the planning and design of bus stops going forward.

Project Bus Stop is one of several ongoing projects by government agencies and the industry to test out innovative technology in Jurong Lake District, which is envisioned to be a leading model for Singapore in developing a mixed-use urban district that is sustainable, smart and connected.
