Best/Worst Transit Stops in your Experience

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am working on a project that looks at urban design around transit stops (bus/tram). I am currently collecting examples of great and horrible stop around the world. I know there must be some fascinating examples around the world that I will never come across unless it is with your help; so I very much appreciate your input.

If you can think of some great stops from your daily travels...

1) Please tell me why (Design? Integration with surrounding land use? Excellent information? Innovative safety mechanism? etcetc)

2) Please include a google streetview link so I can check it out myself or a picture if you already have one

For example, one of my favourites is eugensplatz station in Stuttgart, which is very well integrated with the adjacent park

https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=eugensplatz&hl=en&ll=48.777618,9.190294&spn=0.001525,0.002411&hq=eugensplatz&radius=15000&t=m&z=19&layer=c&cbll=48.777787,9.190374&panoid=D0V6OseG_TcqAgi5Big9_Q&cbp=12,325.86,,0,-3.2

Thank you very much.

I can see a safety issue with the example you gave regarding the platforms extending out into the roadway shoulder. I'm not sure that would go over well here in the US. :ermm:

I have a couple of them I am thinking of. I'll have to get back to you when I have time to dig them up and post some relevant info, as well. Somewhere I have pictures of several BART train stations as well.
