Soooo, I've been wanting a bus stop

I like it the way you have it, very creative enclosing it using phone booths.

I have a few makeshift ones throughout my town, feel free to take ideas if you like them.

    Very cool designs for a bus stop, I hadn't really thought of that.

    Hmmm, billboards are a good idea. Sort of wish I'd picked up one of the Mr Sparkle boards, now, since those are shorter.

    What if you combined a billboard with the concrete wall secctions? That may work...

    We do not have a bus besides ottos, but school buses don't have formal bus stop structures where I am from.

    I didn't think those worked terribly well together, but mostly billboard looks pretty good to me:

    You could also use a training wall with benches in front then a phone booth on either side. Throw in a couple of newspaper dispensers too- most of our bus stops have a row of newspaper dispensers where I live.

    Very cool bus stop designs!

    I googled images of bus stops, and noticed most of them had seats without backs, so that may be something you could try. The billboard is definitely a winner.
    I thought perhaps iron railing, to simulate walls, as most bus stops are see through, but I have no idea for a roof, unless you do a 3D design, and incorporate one square of concrete as the roof.
    The stop sign and newspaper dispenser are winners also.
    I would suggest perusing through images of real bus stops and any that were seen on the show, and see what to do from there.

    So here so what I came up with for a bus stop....didn't work terribly well with the billboard inside, but could work it the shelter was a bit higher I think. Did try one using the concrete slabs but it looked awful..

    Great design, yukongirl123!
    I went ahead and splurged and picked up the billboard. Here's what I made:

    EDIT: Changed view and made it to where it looks as if the stop signs have no poles, and are attached to the bus stop itself.

    Those ideas are great yukongirl and Barry!

    I think I'm going to have to get creative now after this thread :P

    Thanks Bee! I altered the photo a bit, as you can see.

    Thanks Bee and Barry :)

    The shelter does look better with the billboard though....

    Wow, these look great! Pity we don't have a glass wall, but the fences are working quite well :D

    The fences work, especially for creating a shelter with a roof to keep out the elements...

    White fences may be better, but I didn't want to spent the donuts :)

    Just a simple one I whipped up, it's very basic, but I think it does the job:
