Bus stops are designated locations of commuter infrastructure where buses make determined stops to pick-up and drop-off passengers. Bus stops range in design from simple poles to complex structures with curated aesthetics, advertising potentials, and construction methods. Including posted bus timetables in printed and increasingly electronic forms, bus stops should ideally accommodate passengers with bench seating while waiting and shelter for protection from every type of weather. Bus stops are commonly found scattered throughout cities or bunched together at transportation centers.

What is a bus stop?

A bus stop is a designated area made known via a pole or sign where passengers are either able to wait to board or get off of one to make it to the desired destination. A bus stop typically features a bench or cover overhead to sit underneath.

How tall is the bench at a bus stop?

Typically, a bench at a bus stop has a height ranging between 18 and 20 inches (45.7 and 50.8 cm). This range is considered to receive the maximum amount of functionality out of seating.

How far apart are bus stops from each other?

Though the distance between bus stops varies by city and country, bus stops are typically spaced around 600'-900' (182-274 m) apart to most readily serve the public at regular intervals. The capacity of buses and demand for service should also be considered with the placement of bus stops within the city.

A covered bus stop provides an area for waiting for a bus that is protected from the elements. A covered bus stop is nice and shaded in the summer, covered from the snow in the winter, and shielded from the rain during the spring. A covered bus stop is usually more comfortable for waiting than an uncovered stop.
