Seoul's new bus stops to feature free Wi-Fi, mobile phone chargers

The government of Seoul said it will begin test operations of the futuristic bus stops, dubbed "Smart Shelters," at 10 locations in October before expanding the new features to all bus stops located on exclusive median bus lanes throughout the capital next year.


Seoul has exclusive bus lanes in the center of roads or at roadsides. The city will first install the ICT-based bus stops at all those located in the middle of roads before considering expanding to all roadside bus stops after a review of the initial operations.


According to the municipal government, the Smart Shelters will be equipped with things most wanted by citizens waiting for buses, such as wireless mobile phone chargers, heated chairs and free Wi-Fi.


In addition, ceiling-type air cleaners, indoor and outdoor air quality monitors, air curtains blocking the inflow of outdoor air, systems that provide fine dust information, and screen doors will be installed at the shelters to help keep the air clean.
