Spain rolls out its first solar bus stop

The Istituto Europeo di Design of Barcelona (a Design, Fashion, Visual Arts and Communication University in Spain), the Entitat Metropolitan del Transport (the Spanish Transportation authority), and Capmar, S.L. (a Spanish company that produces urban furniture) have created and installed Spain’s first solar powered bus stop.  The bus stop, which is totally self-sufficient, does a lot more than just provide lighting at night – the solar panels drive LCD screens that provide constant updates on bus arrival times and other information to riders.

Here’s a pdf of the press release that I received
