I like how much thought you have put into this! You are right, Keeping it simple is a good idea. I like you’re improvements on preexisting designs. I think this is the most practical solution to the problem.

Preface: I realize this project is important to help ensure the safety of both pedestrians and drivers, but recognize the limited funds that can be designated to this endeavor. The following is to clarify and elaborate upon the diagram drawn.
1. The bus stop shown is the one at the intersection of 2100 South and 900 East, slightly on 900 East.
2. Looking at the location, it is very close to the right-hand turn lane, making it dangerous for cars who wish to get around the bus without hitting the bus or going into the center lane. By moving it back towards the Smith’s shopping center this issue can be avoided.
3. The bus stop should also have thicker supports as well as thicker double-paned glass. Stronger supports will give the structure more integrity, should a driver collide into it. The thicker double paned glass will provide more insulation from sound and the cold, with the open bottom to discourage sleeping or extended stays in the structure.
4. The last advantage of having the bus stop at this location would be the added protection from snow/rain/sun.
