BUS SHELTERS AS HEALTHY COMMUNITY NODES
Bus shelters are an important component of transit infrastructure. Unfortunately, because of limited resources and/or site-engineering constraints, not all bus stops have one in place in the eastern Coachella Valley. This project intends to foster collaboration between health advocates, artists, non-profits, foundations, academics, designers, decision-makers, transportation planners and the local transit agency-SunLine. This collaborative will explore viable solutions that can improve community health through preventing sun exposure and heat-related illnesses, generate economic development, create community assets and get the community involved through a creative community engagement process.
