Each bus stop has its own characteristics depending on the location of the bus stop. For example, if a bus stop is located in an area where it is very diverse the bus stop will focus on teaching individuals about the different cultures and languages present. Even though some bus waits may only last a few minutes. The bus stop is designed as a come and go lessons. People are free to leave whenever they feel. Also the interaction area is separate from the actual bus wait area, which gives people the freedom to choose what they wish.
