Passengers will no longer have to brave the elements while waiting for their bus, thanks to a new shelter that has been installed in Downings Wood, Maple Cross.
The new bus shelter, which is made of sustainable wood, is part of Three Rivers District Council’s (TRDC) Better Buses programme, which also provides funding for local bus services.
Another new shelter in South Oxhey has been designed to be powered by the sun.
Councillor Paul Rainbow, TRDC’s lead member for transport, said: “I am delighted that the two new bus shelters have been installed.
“These high-quality shelters provide much-needed weather protection for our residents and commuters, who are rightly taking public transport rather than private vehicles.”
Mill End resident Rachel said: “I’ve been put off using the buses in recent years, but if shelters are to be improved, I might be tempted to use them again.”
Referring to the solar-powered shelter in South Oxhey, Rachel said: “I’m very ‘green’ so I’m pleased the council is being energy-efficient.”
