Innovation 2020: Connected bus shelter
Traditional bus shelters are quickly becoming obsolete. Outside of aesthetics, bus shelters have remained the same for ages. This is changing. New technologies and applications are now being used to enable Connected Bus Shelter to be much more.
Within the context of a smart community, bus shelters equipped with ultra-broadband connections can come alive, improve user experiences, and enable new business opportunities. This report describes the scope of a market trial of new, modern shelters with ultra-broadband connections that was recently performed in Auckland, New Zealand. It presents the results and key findings and outlines the opportunities for future applications.
