View: Photovoltaic solar panel on bus stops
In the UK, bus shelters are, on the whole, pretty dark places at night. They don't need to be. In Germany, every bus and tram shelter is somewhere with enough light to read should you wish to use the time productively. It means you can read the timetable as well. In the UK, you have to bring a torch. You also have to stand near the entrance and watch the road: the driver will not see you lurking in the shadows.
Photovoltaic solar panels have dropped in price rapidly. Retrofitting heavily used bus shelters with photovoltaic modules and lighting them properly should be piloted somewhere.
