MIT’s SENSEable City Lab designed these bus stops for Florence, Italy.   The stops include LED and touch screen displays which can display information like Florence’s Air Quality, Real-time locations of the buses, and silent moving advertisements.  iPhone owners might also be able to download an application which works with the bus stops – and lets them know when the bus is running late.

Here are three websites that discuss the stops:
