Bus or tram stops serve as the interface between the public transport system and life in urban areas. They are significant mobility spaces, but they could also lead to spatial conflicts between public transport passengers and other city residents. The concept Tris transforms the conventional bus (or tram) stop into an integrated, symbiotic urban space from which everyone should benefit. The street space for public transport users, pedestrians and cyclists is maximized here. A crosswalk connects the stops in both directions and contributes to more safety for pedestrians on the road. The stop and its public furniture is marked by a 60° grid system. It interrupts the orthogonal road network and symbolises the diverse offerings: public transport connections, information about the neighbourhood and the large space itself. The color gradient of the floor and the positioning of the furniture guide people intuitively through the space.
