Waiting for the bus on streets surrounded by traffic jams and heavy traffic is a typical everyday event for commuters, who inhale exhaust fumes containing dangerous particles. Modern diesel engines have improved performance and consumption, but at a cost. They produce smaller particulates that are easier to absorb in the human body.
We breathe up to 15kg of air daily, so the quality of what we breathe is fundamentally important to our health. Respiratory conditions affect 2 in 10 people and studies show diesel particulates are likely to worsen asthma.
The City Oasis shelter is fitted with a state-of-the-art filtration roof that filters out up to 85% of the pollutants, then streams cleaner air through the roof and legs into the shelter environment, which gives passengers a cleaner,
healthier and more attractive environment to wait.
