A bus shelter is a waiting place for travellers. Armada Mobility offers reliable, high quality shelters: from bus shelters and smoking shelters to ticket machine shelters. With our shelters you offer your users comfort and safety. You can also contact us for second-hand/refurbished shelters. We regularly have various used shelters ready for you, which are in good condition for reuse. We have a range of options, so that we can meet your requirements.




Types of shelters & waiting rooms

You can have our shelters custom made. For example, you can choose from aluminium and steel, various frame sizes, powder coating in several RAL colours and second-hand. Our shelters can even be expanded with solar panels or a sedum roof. Together, we will come up with the best solution for your situation. We engineer, produce and install, so we can support you from A to Z: we can think along with you in the design, but we can also remove the old shelter, lay a sand bed and pave.

What is a shelter?

As mentioned, a bus shelter is a waiting place for travellers. However, bus shelters are not the only kind of shelters. For example, it is also possible to use the shelter as a smoking shelter or ticket machine shelter. Shelters are therefore designed to offer travellers comfort and safety in the public space. Bus shelters can also be recognised by the fact that they are half open and largely made of glass.


Because of their usually good visibility in public spaces along roads or railway lines, bus shelters are often provided with advertising displays. This is often done in the form of a large light box on one of the walls of the bus shelter.


Shelter meaning

The term abri (shelter) is derived from the French 'abriter', which means 'to shelter'. This is also the main function of the shelter. Regardless of whether it is used as a bus shelter, smoking shelter or ticket machine shelter. The purpose of a bus shelter is primarily to offer comfort and safety to its users in the public space.


Abri shelter

As mentioned, shelters are mainly waiting places for public transport passengers. In this way, users can wait for their bus, tram or train without getting wet and out of the wind. If necessary, the waiting shelters can also be extended with extra components that provide even more comfort and appearance. Examples include:


  • Seating possibility in the form of a bench;
  • Information panel;
  • Lighting;
  • Waste bin;
  • Advertising display case on one of the walls.





Bus shelter costs

The costs of purchasing a bus shelter obviously differs per type, type and design. It is therefore very difficult to answer the question 'what are the costs of a bus shelter?'. This is simply custom work. Something we at Armada Mobility would like to discuss with you!
