The project logo Wake Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Station Design Visual Preference Survey

BRT station design is one of the most critical elements of the Wake BRT system.  It serves as the face of the BRT System. Typical elements of BRT stations include raised platforms for an easy, accessible and faster boarding process, off-board fare collection, real-time arrival information and enhanced stations.  

We invite you to provide feedback on how you would like the Wake BRT Stations to look. Please note that the images you see below are from existing transit stations in other cities.

Which type of signage and graphics are preferable for the Wake BRT System?
Which type of signage and graphics are preferable for the Wake BRT System?

Applied signage is that which is added to shelters and stations. This type of signage would be easy to change and update as needed. Integral signage is part of the shelter design. While attractive and striking, it would not be as easy to change so would be considered more permanent.
