Have your say on bus shelters

Commuters may eventually enjoy their wait for the bus if Auckland Transport's new shelter designs are well received. 

In an effort to give a uniform look to the region's bus shelters and make the bus network more recognisable AT has developed three trial shelters which are now on display at the Symonds St overbridge.

AT wants feedback on their design to determine which one will be rolled out across the region. 

Public transport group manager Mark Lambert said people should visit the shelters not just to see how they look, but how they feel. 

Lambert said the best shelters are "attractive, functional and adaptable to most bus stop locations and conditions," he said. 

"We want people to enjoy, not endure, their wait for the bus, and what better way to do this than asking how we can improve the experience for our customers." 

"Already the anecdotal feedback we are receiving is very encouraging and we expect a lot of interest during the consultation period." 

The trial will also assess how the shelters perform against criteria, such as value for money, durability, and ease of construction.

Cycle parking, retail kiosks, and technology might be incorporated into new shelter designs.

The consultation period runs until August 22.
