The city of Zaragoza, Spain has partnered with MIT's SENSEable City Lab to design an interactive bus stop. In preparation of hosting the 2008 World Expo, the city is installing a new bus service. The Lab's design, the Adaptable Bus Stop, incorporates several types of digital technologies in order to offer new services to the public, allow for cost-effective manufacturing, and enable the generation of advertising revenue.

A parametric design model determines a unique design for each stop providing optimal sheltering at minimal cost. Bus riders can plan their trip on a interactive map, exchange community relevant information on a digital message board, surf the web, and use the media on the bus shelter as an interface to their mobile devices.
