It was a foolish decision to introduce glass shelters that are destroyed with a single smash

They should not be smashed in the first instance. Tells you about the quality of people we deal with.

That's right, but can you imagine someone being deemed not of sound mind for building wooden carriages in the 21st century?

So looks like the new contractor is more video screen focused.

I just hope they are smart enough to integrate real time bus info with the screens. In my mind it's a win-win as more people will actually look at the ads

It's important that the new shelters be functional. The Decaux shelters are not. If you sit on the seat you cant see the bus coming because of the advertising.

Would be practical to have the lights or screens change colour or increase in luminosity when there is someone within a specified vicinity of the bus stop.

Would be particularly useful during quieter times to assist the driver with identifying potential boarding passengers. :!: :idea:
