This bus stop, which will be a precursor to 15 other stations in the Capital Governorate, is characterized by its innovative design, as it meets the needs and requirements of passengers, with a modern concept, and is in line with international standards. In a press statement, the Hawally Governor Ali Al-Asfar said, “The aim of the project is to eliminate congestion by 80 percent if it is circulated to the rest of the governorate.” He called for the contribution of private companies to develop means of transportation and bus stops.

Regarding the costs of establishing the bus stop, Al-Asfar said, “The governorate was the one that undertook its construction, and the cost amounted to KD 5,000.” He went on to say, “The governorate was keen for the maintenance period to be ten years in order to ensure the quality of service. What we lack is for some state agencies to help us deliver electricity so that we can implement the project in crowded areas within four months. The bus stop contains automated doors and air conditioning units to provide comfort for passengers and to protect them from humidity and hot weather. There are also CCTV cameras installed to maintain security therein.”
