Air-conditioned bus shelters for Dubai

From Gulf News: Published: May 10, 2006, 00:00

Dubai: Air-conditioned bus shelters, the city's next landmark development, will be ready before next summer.

"Dubai will be the first city in the world to offer the luxury of air-conditioned bus shelters for passengers," said Mattar Al Tayer, Chief Executive of the city's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), at the launching ceremony of the prototype shelter.

"The aim is to lure people into using the city's public transport, and ease the pressure on its crowded roads," he said.

Well, I guess taking more cars off the roads will help the environment.........

Lets just hope that the energy saved is enough to aircondition 800 bus shelters...!.

You are no longer welcome in the kingdon of Dubai. Dissent will not be tolerated. Airconditioned bus stops are a part of our ancient bedouin culture predating the Silk Routes.
