They’ve gotta be kidding us!
The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority has installed air-conditioned bus shelters all over the city in preparation of next year’s summer. One of the purposes of these environment controlled shelters is to lure people to take the public transport to reduce the bottleneck traffic everyday in the emirate.
The capacity of the very badly designed shelter is 14, 8 seated and 6 standing. On the average, 20-30 people wait at bus stops and given the culture this country has, everyone was surprised that the shelters has no separate section for ladies.

How can they not see, from the design stage that functionality heavily sacrificed for the design? What were they thinking, shaping the bus shelters like the iconic Burj Al Arab?
