Designing green bus shelters in Cornwall

Action leader(s)

Cornwall Council (United Kingdom)

Summary

In 2011 Cornwall had around 6,000 bus stops with a wide range of associated shelters and signs. A programme of improvements to the quality and sustainability of this transport infrastructure, based on need and capacity, was created. The sustainable procurement of bus shelters was conducted in three stages: design; prototype development; and large scale production. This example focuses on the design stage.
