A little bus station like this can be, in essence, a big shade structure that can house about ten buses. A shade structure that allows stablishing the bus bays protected against the rain or sunlight. There are a few conditions to design the bus bays. They should be traced in an angle of 45 degrees, with the access in clockwise direction. In this way, the platforms could be longer and more comfortable for passengers. A plain covered space that will allow an easy transit for buses and a services area with controlled access to ticket offices, luggage lockers, toilets, cafeteria and the waiting area.
In Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the bus station was placed in the central area of a new boulevard that replaced the old railways. So the shade, a rectangular space opened in its perimeter, is a continuation of the public space. The services area stands in one of the long sides. The waiting area and the queue for tickets are near the platforms, behind a glass wall that allows passengers to see the arrivals and departures of buses. The other services, that is ticket offices, luggage lockers, toilets and cafeteria are aligned at the bottom.
