Donate Warmth Via Bus Shelters

In the Autumn of 2013, Vienna’s City Park, one of the most important sleeping areas for homeless in Vienna, became restricted to them. Consequently hundreds of people suffered from this.
In order to draw attention to this issue, Gewista developed a heating 6-sheet by replacing florescent tubes with heat lamps. For €1 people waiting for the bus could enjoy warmth a few minutes, while the donated money helped to slightly improve the lives of homeless people.

Duracell – Moments of Warmth in Canadian winter

During this winter of ice storms and a polar vortex, moments of warmth are few and far between. Duracell wanted to see if they could change that.
They set up a heating unit in a bus shelter- the only catch was that you had to join hands and complete a human chain in order to turn on the overhead heater system. Each person on either end of the chain places their hands on the wall of the bus stop to complete the circuit.

Heated bus stops offer mini tropical getaways for New Yorkers

To entice New Yorkers to visit Florida during the winter, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau recently installed a heated bus shelter in NYC.
The heated bus shelter is located at Lexington and Third Avenue and commuters who wait in the shelter are given sunglasses and free Metro cards. They are also allowed the chance to relax on beach chair-inspired benches.
The heated shelter is part of the tourism board’s “The Beach Looks Good on You” campaign and will be open for a month during the winter.
The campaign coincides with the Super Bowl when the area receives high foot traffic from visitors and locals going to and from the games.
As part of the campaign, the Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau will also hold an event at the Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall on January 28th and at Terminal 5 of JFK Airport for a week ending on Super Bowl Monday. The event will feature live music and videos of Fort Lauderdale’s beaches, as well as solar-charging stations and airfare giveaways courtesy of JetBlue Airways.
