A couple of weeks ago, as I was driving up from Ras AL Ein to the the 3rd Circle, I noticed something interesting on the street. Apparently this is the first prototype of Amman’s new bus shelters. I stopped the car, then waited (quite a bit) for the two ladies sitting there to get on the bus, to take a few photos.
The prototype is pretty impressive and solid. From what I understand, this bus shelter (or variations of it) along with new Mupi advertising boards, trash cans and benches will be rolled out city-wide in the coming months, as part of the city’s street furniture upgrade effort.
The company who won the tender to do this is Seagulls, who already are very active in the Jordanian billboard market (as well as in radio and publishing). I found a visual representation of the Amman street furniture system along with a press release on Seagulls’ site.
I also noticed one installed example of the Mupi picture above at the end of Mecca Street, just before the new big roundabout (Medical City Road), but didn’t have a chance to take a photo.
Just in case you don’t take notice of such stuff, here is reminder of how bus shelter look in Amman today!
And here are more photos of the new prototype..
