Campaign successfully funded on: 25 May,2017

This project has been successfully funded with $4,665 (117%)

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Back in the time, it was possible to travel by train from major capital cities in Europe to Lebanon. Unfortunately, today, that is not the case. The public transportation sector in Lebanon had its boom in around 1895 (opening of the first railway in Beirut) up until the year 1965, where the collateral damage of the civil war caused irreversible damage to the railways. Without a proper railway in Lebanon, at least connecting Beirut to other areas of Lebanon, there will be an over-demand of personal and public transportation.

The goal of this project is to improve the public transport services of Lebanon, and the first step is to fix the Bus stop services. Therefore, our project aims at designing and implementing a network of “smart” bus stops in Lebanon. This will be the start of the reactivation of the public transportation services that were once appreciated by the users.

What do we mean by Smart bus stops?

  • They run on solar power energy
  • They are built using sustainable material
  • They provide an outlet for users to charge their phones
  • Their maintenance cost will be provided by advertisements to ensure the durability of the project.



What are the challenges?

We got all the approvals needed. However, without a funding source, we will not be able to implement the project. Therefore, we need to get endorsement from local sponsors while engaging the municipalities.


Who Benefits From This Project?

  • Civilians using the bus  (Providing them with consistency for their daily commute, as well as shelter)
  • Bus Drivers (less frustration from having to randomly stop)
  • All Drivers (Reducing traffic by 30%)
  • Tourists (They can finally know where the buses stop)

Why Donate to Our Project?

  • Believe it or not, public transportation in Lebanon has degraded a lot in the past 80 years. The tram, the train, and respectful bus stops have disappeared from our country.
  • We are the first people to take this initiative that will organize the bus lines in Lebanon and benefit all Lebanese citizens. Is it a dream to achieve respectful bus stops as the ones implemented in Europe? Definitely not. It only needs a little bit of dedication and a lot of your help!
  • This project will drastically reduce the traffic problems in Lebanon.




The units cost: 

- Type A: 4500$ (taking into consideration that H2 Eco Design and Contracting is funding half of the cost)

- Type B: 4000$ (taking into consideration that H2 Eco Design and Contracting is funding half of the cost)

-Type C: 1500$ (taking into consideration that H2 Eco Design and Contracting is funding half of the cost)

Depending on the type of bus stop, on average, we need:

  • $4,500:   to implement 3 units
  • $9,000:   to implement 6 units
  • $15,000: to implement 10 units
  • $24,000: to implement 16 units
  • $30,000: to implement 20 units
