How to Design an Equitable Bus Shelter

In partnership with the Vision Russell Neighborhood Initiative, the Civic Design Studio at Luckett & Farley set out create a better bus shelter prioritizing art, equity, and community. Our architecture firm collaborated with the Louisville Metro Housing Authority in its project to create and implement a dynamic plan for the historically underserved neighborhood.

Our team of architects rode TARC buses to talk with riders about what they wanted and needed from their bus shelters. This simple step to gather community input from residents riding the bus helped build out the other features of SmART Stop #2’s creative design. Their feedback was instrumental to identifying what users wanted from this stop. Bus riders who frequent this stop were able to weigh in on the design and had impact in its outcome.
