More information

Background information:
Bus stop poles literally indicate where the bus stops. It is even an unwritten rule that the bus stops at the pole with the front door. The bus stop poles occur at quiet stops with only a small sidewalk along the street. Busier stops also have a shelter (Abri) bicycle racks, guide tiles for the visually impaired people, and sometimes a bus lane or parking space for the bus, so that it does not hinder the rest of the traffic on that road when stopping. In summary, a stop can look very different, depending on the bustle of the stop and the road, but the bus stop pole is almost always the basis.

Architectural details:
The bus stop post is formed by a galvanized mostly light gray post with a thickening in the lower part. Just below eye level for most people, there is a small white sign with the timetable for the bus lines that stop at the stop. At the top of the post is a galvanized U-shaped profile that holds the recognizable, usually yellow, sign. In a number of contemporary situations, the predominantly yellow sign has been replaced by a predominantly blue sign. The layout and dimensions of the board have remained the same in those cases. Regardless of the color, the sign often indicates which bus lines make use of the stop. The bus stop is usually located about 1 meter (3 tiles) from the side of the road.
