Design of Sustainable Smart Bus Station; Case Study of Bilecik, Turkey
Main Article Content
The urbanization rate has increased with the emerging fact of rural-to-urban immigration after the industrial revolution, thus causing various urban problems based on rapid population growth. Today, transportation and traffic problems in cities are becoming more prominent, growing with each passing day. Along with the rapid population growth in cities, as leading to an increase in the number of vehicles, preference of east-to-implement & shallow measures, instead of drastic and radical solutions in the infrastructure, operation, administration and controlling of the unplanned urbanization. Public transportation vehicles play a critical role in the lives of many, living in cities. The city-dwellers generally use public transportation vehicles as they leave their homes in order to get to the workplaces or schools. Facing with certain problems in transportation due to the buses being delayed while waiting at the bus stops, they may be late for where they are expected to arrive due to the delay of buses. In other words, it is a critical fact that people know where the bus they take is and how long it will take until they arrive at the bus stop.
