tranSIT / Wayfinding Rest Stop

tranSIT
tranSIT

tranSIT is a hybrid walking waypoint system for urban environments, combining seating with wayfinding and street lighting. Staying true to the principles of universal design, it is designed to improve the walkability of cities for people of all ages.

To encourage walking in the local community, basic walking times to popular nearby destinations are provided, along with QR code access to maps and further information.

Using the translucency of Corian, LED street lighting is integrated for security at night. Power is supplied via a small rooftop solar unit. This also allows for the possible integration of WiFi or street phone charging.
