Bored of seeing the same types of bus shelters around the city?

The City of New Westminster, in partnership with the City’s engineering department, has released a public bus shelter that doubles as a public art piece.

The City commissioned Studio HUIZENGA to create the art piece. It was inspired by Queenborough’s natural landscape, and is also part of the City of New Westminster’s public art program.

The project is entitled Furled Trail, and is meant to be a showcase for design for inclusive design. The goal is to improve the rider experience for people of all ages and abilities, connecting with the community, and increasing local exposure of art.

“We are proud to bring a unique public art design to the functional structure of the Queensborough bus shelter which will not only enhance the everyday rider experience but also beautify the community,” said Mayor Jonathon Coté in a release.

The bus shelter is on Ewen Avenue across from the Queensborough Community Centre, and is one of the stops on the Translink route No.104.
