Item description for Next Stop: Urban Public Transport by Francesc Zamora...
This book explores the architectural, graphic and industrial design aspects of the best new transit infrastructure from around the world. New public transit comes in a huge variety of forms, incorporating, of course, subways, buses, and light rail. But also alternative modes like bicycle sharing systems, bus subways, aerial cable cars and many others. But all share a need for clean, clear functionality. And beyond that they have become important civic landmarks. Great cities have come to be identified with their transit systems. Their stations are often seen as gateways to a city or a district. And as such carry important civic meaning, which demands appropriate design expression. Designers have responded, re-examining everything from the layout of complex intermodal transit stations to paving details at light rail stops, signage, street furniture and the interior details of vehicles.
