Through its CityBench program, DOT installs benches at bus stops and in commercial areas to support transit use and to encourage walking. DOT installs two types of benches; both are designed to enhance usability for older adults and people with ambulatory disabilities.
The LeaningBar, a new element for Select Bus Service and other high ridership bus stops, complements CityBenches by providing another opportunity for transit riders to rest as they wait for the bus. Leaning can be especially appealing to older adults for whom sitting requires greater effort.
Bus stop shelters are part of the Coordinated Street Furniture Franchise that is managed by JCDecaux. The award-winning, stainless-steel and glass design provides seating and protection for bus users. Bus stop shelters are supported by advertising and generate revenue for the city.
A temporary seating installation in the furnishing zone or parking lane that creates an inviting location for eating, reading, working, meeting a friend, or taking a rest during the warm-weather months. Interested parties apply to DOT, select the design, and install and maintain the Street Seat.
