Really good ideas! I like your Eco-friendly views, that's definitely the next direction Salt lake is heading towards. Way to think ahead!

Very modern and unique. A good representation of the new modern “Image” that UTA seems to be perusing right now. I like it!

This is modern enough and where you dont have to have your bike right there with you and you can sit down.

This looks like a very "Salt Laker" type design. I like it! Simple, cheap (bad economy), and effective. I think this is the winner!

Could be cool. Are those bikes for rent?

Simple, Friendly, and Efficient

Submitted by apm0508 on March 20, 2010

I plan on submitting a few, yet essential, design elements that are flexible to almost any selected design plan. It is very important to consider both cost – in its building as well as the upkeep – and its “user-friendliness”. With that said, it is necessary to incorporate (or something similar to):
• A map of bus routes
• A LCD screen (digital display) of the bus and time of arrival, as well as the current time.
• Nearby, ATM/Bus token dispenser
• Bike stand(s)- capable of holding a good number of bikes
• Art (incorporated into the architecture)
• Seating (accessible to handicap)
• Emergency phone or call button
• A light and open feel
• Recycled building material
• Solar Panel roofing to generate heat as well as cooling
I feel that it is important to keep it simple, friendly, and efficient. No need to overspend or to be over the top, but to indeed be thoughtful. Salt Lake is moving toward a greener and eco-friendly environment, and this bus stop should express this.

The image provided below is not my own work, just something I liked. I’ll leave the design to the artists and architects!
