|GP: Passengers appreciate improved bus stops - Graz - Austria|
Graz has improved 60 bus and tram stops in various ways. Shelters and better access have made more travellers positive to public transport and helped mobility impaired to travel easier.
In Graz, public transportation used to have a bad image since the stops were old with no waiting shelters and no adaptation for mobility impaired. Therefore, 60 of the city’s 800 stops for buses and trams were rebuilt and improved within Trendsetter. The stops are situated at important junctions, close to the city centre or at the end of lines. They were provided with shelters against bad weather and with surfaces ensuring accessibility for the functionally impaired.
