Hundreds of bus stops in Holland covered in plants for honeybees

A great idea.

In the Dutch city Utrecht, 316 bus stops now have a green roof with the aim of making the city more eco-friendly.

Hundreds of the Dutch bus stops are getting the makeovers and are being transformed into green sanctuaries for honeybees and and people alike.

While they're great for the bees, the green roofs also help capture fine dust, storage of rainwater and provide cooling in the summertime.

The roofs are looked after by workers who drive around in electric vehicles, and the bus stops have all been fitted with energy-efficient LED lights and bamboo benches.

The city aims to introduce 55 new electric buses by the end of the year with a goal of completely clean public transport by the year 2028.

You can have a look at the bus stops in action below.
