The Pensilina Unica project outlines a new system of poles and shelters that are “intelligent”: capable of collecting information on the surrounding environment and redistributing it to the public through an intuitive and immediate medium. The result is a new travel experience, which makes public transport more efficient, competitive and, above all, interactive: the goal is to make waiting for a bus (often long and grueling) an experiential activity. An efficient public service may, in a region where the transport is mainly by road, improve the overall road network, both urban and suburban.
