How many hours a week, month, year do we spend waiting for that bus that never comes? The big brands apparently noticed that this is prime territory for advertising and got really creative. Here are some examples of the most bizarre bus stops which have popped up over the years in and around Europe. Who knows, maybe waiting for the bus at one of these wouldn’t be so stressful…

If you think of bus stops what comes to mind? Probably just a kiosk set up on the side of the road, maybe some uncomfortable chairs, an ad here or there, city map and some graffiti tags. If you’re lucky you could find yourself waiting for your bus at one of the world’s many unusual stops, little masterpieces of the advertising industry that, if nothing else, finally amuse and even spark a smile in us while we travel.

    1. Wow! Now that’s what I call a luxury bus stop! Tea, tv, art, flowers… I’d actually want the bus to be late if I was the one standing there waiting for it. Thanks for sharing Andy!
