The roofs of hundreds of bus stops have been covered in plants as a gift to honeybee, by a city in the Netherlands. Mainly made up of sedum plants, a total of 316 have been covered in greenery in Utrecht. The shelters not only support the city’s biodiversity, such as honey bees and bumblebees, but they also help capture fine dust and store rainwater.


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.
They are just one of a number of measures Utrecht has introduced in a bid to improve air quality.
The city aims to introduce 55 new electric buses by the end of the year and have “completely clean public transport” by 2028.

We should follow this in India too.

We should make good use of vertical space as well, like in Singapore.

While it's a good idea to provide nutrition to bees I'm wondering what the people waiting for the buses will say.

Very good initiative. However, commuters waiting at bus stops or alighting from bus faces the chance of bee stings. Proper care must be taken for that too. Reproducing this in other cities can helL reduce pollution level.
