JCDecaux develops ‘bus shelters of tomorrow’ concept

147

JCDecaux has developed a range of innovative street furniture using an up-cycling approach that repurposes used materials including glass, steel and wood. The company’s ‘concept shelters’ are already sparking conversations with interested parties, including town halls and local authorities as this initiative meets different challenges, notably concerning responsible development. As up-cycling already exists in certain sectors, it is up to the end users to adopt it on a more industrial scale, by designing a new range of products that will use existing resources to promote a more sustainable future. JCDecaux has designed a new generation of bus shelters, ‘concept shelters’, using repurposed used materials (glass, steel, wood, etc.) from its own or other sectors, with a minimum of transformation, says a press release.
