The experience of taking a public bus is often chaotic and stressful. Checking the route, finding the right station, flag the right bus and knowing when to get off are the tasks passengers have to tackle. Waiting for the bus at a bus station is full of uncertainty and one can easily miss a bus if he/she does not get up quickly enough to flag it down. For the visually impaired and passengers with physical disabilities, this is particularly challenging.
Why can’t the bus-waiting experience be more relaxing, or even premium? Like a valet service, The Bus Valet is a bus stand that allows passengers to presignal the bus they wish to take while they wait relaxingly, as if the bus is coming to them. Upon seeing the sign board's lit numbers, the bus driver will know when to stop to pick up passengers as the bus approaches the station. For the visually impaired or physically disabled passengers, and also for the rest of us, we can take a short break during the usually stressful commute.
