Bus Shelter Development is one of the critical infrastructure necessary in any Public Transport Bus Operations. It enhances service delivery and provides a shield against harsh environmental conditions such as rain and sunlight. Bus shelters are demand- driven public transport infrastructure for picking and dropping-off of passengers.
Thus, meeting present and future traffic demand and loading errors is one of the critical problems associated with bus stops and lay-bys design.
These infrastructure, which are largely insufficient along the major roads in most cities in Nigeria, have been identified as one of the major reasons for the perennial traffic congestion in the country. The bus operators are usually left with little or no choice than to conduct their operations (loading and off-loading) on the road, thereby reducing effective road width and ultimately leading to traffic congestion.
Planet Projects has seen the need to reduce the incessant on-street loading activities of buses to improve traffic flow within the major cities by deploying its team of experts to develop suitable bus shelter facilities in line with international best practices.
The objective of this effort is to accommodate the demand for drop-offs and pick-ups of passengers.
