Based on research conducted by the University of Minnesota Center for Transportation Studies which found that greenery at bus stops reduced perceived waiting times for transit riders, The Living Bus Shelter explored how we might bring green space into our cities’ bus shelters to create a more inviting and enjoyable experience for transit riders. In addition to providing vibrant greenery to the bus shelter, all the plants at The Living Bus Shelter were edible; transit riders and passersby were encouraged to explore them, taste them, and bring some home to enjoy with dinner. The Living Bus Shelter was ThreeSeven’s contribution to The Bus Stop Pilot Project, a collaboration between the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District and Metro Transit that aimed to explore new ways of thinking about bus shelters while making improvements to bus stops at high ridership, high priority locations in downtown Minneapolis that lack permanent waiting area fixtures.
