- June 10: Fresh, talented and full of ideas: young professionals share their vision of public transport
SHELTY: the child-friendly shelterHow do we make public transport child-friendly? Is it possible to make it attractive for “little” passengers?
Today, every child has a smartphone and uses applications to get quick info. Why shouldn’t we use the same technology to make public transport appealing? Imagine a child waiting at the bus shelter with his mum. The variable message showing the waiting time is out of sight and time seems to be endless. Public transport is boring! But wait, there is something colourful there, at a child height: a little puppet, SHELTY! The child clicks a button to connect: by saying “HEY SHELTY”, He can ask some easy questions. #heySHELTY, how long until the next bus arrives? Shelty: the child-friendly shelter.
