City of Sydney unveils new digital street furniture

The City of Sydney has begun installation of digital bus shelters as part of an architect-designed street furniture rollout.

The 340 new bus shelters will offer more sun and rain protection, better accessibility and comfort for people waiting at transport stops. The digital shelters feature advertising screens that can display real-time event information, community updates and public safety messaging.

The infrastructure was designed by Grimshaw Architects.

The program also features new information pylons with interactive touchscreens, along with public toilets, retail kiosks, benches and litter bins. Construction work will be done in stages to minimise disruption across the City of Sydney’s 26 km2 area.

The 160 communication pylons will be used to display event information and public messaging. The units incorporate interactive touchscreens to make wayfinding easier and an ergonomic design to assist vision-impaired citizens. The pylon installation will commence in Feburary next year.
