    Bus waiting is a very difficult situation in the day of everyone who lives in São Paulo. Because of the traffic jam and the bad bus schedule, it can last up to one hour for the bus to arrive. The huge urban mesh of the city is not planned, what complicates even more user's localization. Shelters lack of information, increasing localization problems. Furthermore, existing bus shelters doesn’t suit to the declives and sidewalks irregularities. Therefore, the goal was to create a family of modular bus shelters which could provide services and solutions to improve the waiting and enhance user well-being. The simple modular shape of Guisa bus shelter system enables many configurations for all situations, allowing local assembly and easy manufacturing. Guisa also provides clear information and schedule visualizing on real time. Read Less

Bus wait is a very difficult situation for everyone who live in São Paulo. Due to the traffic jam and the bad bus schedule, it can last up to one hour for the bus to arrive. The huge urban mesh is not planned, which complicates user's localization and the lack of ready information increases that problems even more. Furthermore, existing bus shelters do not protect users from weather, making the wait become even worse.
 
The goal of this project was to create a family of modular bus shelters that could provide services and features to improve the wait and enhance user's well-being. The simple modular shape of Guisa enables many configurations for all urban situations, allowing local assembly and easy manufacture. Guisa also provides clear information and schedule visualization in real time.
