Julie Kim wondered what would happen if you placed a coffee table, stack of newspapers and a cheery vase of flowers at a Los Angeles bus stop. Secretly filming them, she found that people actually engaged with one another.
It certainly poses a question to local councils about how they can improve the environment of waiting for a delayed bus, day after day. Sometimes I have to wait for 30 minutes in London for a bus that should be arriving every 5-10 minutes, but if the councils provided a nicer environment I'd certainly feel a lot less stabby when the bus driver finally turns up.
