316 Bus Stops In The Netherlands Are Transforming Into Green Sanctuaries For Bees

Hundreds of Dutch bus stops are getting green, eco-friendly makeovers so they can be turned into lush green sanctuaries for honeybees and humans too.


All 316 bus stops in Utrecht are receiving rooftops covered in sedum plants. Not only are the succulents good for improving air quality, but they are also useful for helping to support dwindling pollinator populations.


Succulents are good for storing rainwater, capturing dust particulates from the air, and providing a cooling environment in the summertime, according to the city.


The sedum roofs are only one of the ways that the city is improving upon their transit shelters; over the next few years, Utrecht will be installing solar panels on every single one of their bus stops.


In February 2019, the city also announced that they'd be replacing their current transit vehicles with a new fleet of electric buses.

Regional officials aim to employ an entirely carbon-neutral transit fleet before 2028.


Moreover, Utrecht is offering subsidies to city residents who want to replace their worn-out rooftops with sedum roofing or solar panels.
