It may also feature seating, and possibly electronic passenger information systems. This is less busy stops may use a simple pole and flag to mark the location.

Bus stops are, in some locations, clustered together into transport hubs. This allows interchange between routes from nearby stops and with other public transport modes to maximize convenience.
