Bus Station Of The Future Lets Riders Buy Snacks, Recharge Phone [Pics]
Marc Aurel's 'Station Diderot' project is a public transit shelter that makes life easier by providing lots of services in one place.
Station Diderot is an experimental bus station project by designer Marc Aurel at Boulevard Diderot in Paris. This multi-purpose space provides an idea of what bus stations of the future could look like. The public transit shelter is no longer just dedicated to waiting for a bus, it offers lots of other services too and promotes social interaction.
Station Diderot is a place of social innovation in the provision of services. It allows people to have a coffee while they're waiting, borrow a book, listen to music, recharge their phone, purchase food to take away, buy a bus ticket, get information about the neighborhood, and rent a bike. It also features an adaptive and energizing light that is regulated both day and night.
