PROJECT BRIEF:

Date of Introduction: 19/01/2016

The metropolitan transport corporation, former known as Pallavan Transport


Corporation, is the agency that operates the public service in Chennai. It has an operating area
of 3,929 square kilometers, 3531 no. of buses and more den 500 bus shelters are their Chennai.
To decide what type of shelter to use in a particular area requires an analysis of existing and
anticipated conditions, as well as some knowledge of the characteristics of good shelter location
and design.
A good bus shelter is an essential part of any successful urban mass-transit system. What
constitutes good however depends upon your point of view. From the perspective of the city
agency that is responsible for its management, a good shelter is one that has low maintenance
requirements and is vandal-resistant. From the riders point of view, an ideal shelter is one that
allows visibility and easy access to the bus, is comfortable and convenient, provides clear
information, and is safe. Both viewpoints are equally important to consider, because an unused
shelter is a waste of money and an unnecessary maintenance problem. A well-designed,
comfortable shelter can make waiting for a bus a pleasant and even interesting experience!
Unfortunately, many poorly designed shelters also exist. A bus shelter should be designed to
reflect the city in which it is located. This can be accomplished through the use of local materials
and by the design details. Often standard shelters can be adapted to reflect the unique
characteristics of the area in which they are located. Within this context there are four general
qualities are visibility, accessibility, comfort and convenience, and information that any welldesigned bus shelter.
