Bus Stops, Present and Future

IMG_0078

I snapped this picture of one of the new bus stop signs on the transit mall yesterday. It’s gorgeous, but I couldn’t help wondering where the stop id is? I’ve tried to use transit tracker a couple of times since buses came back to the mall and the first place I always look is on these signs – where it isn’t.

Now to be fair, the stop id IS on a map in frame display a few feet away. But why didn’t TriMet also put them in plain site on these signs?

As for the future, via Planetizen, here’s a concept from MIT for “bus stops of the future“. Maybe it’s not too late to order a few of these for the mall!
