UK-based Trueform recently built a bus stop made from thousands of LEGO bricks! Working in collaboration with Transport for London, Trueform collected 100,000 building blocks to create the bus stop on Regent Street – including signage, seats and the back wall. This unique piece of urban design celebrates 200 years of London buses.

Trueform designed the bus stop to the last detail-clear bricks serve as “glass” on the back wall, while the tongue-in-cheek arrival screen reads “Next bus is just a brick away.” Even the signage is made from Lego pieces, while maps were tacked on with spray adhesive.

The London Transport Museum and Transport for London put on a show to celebrate The Year of the Bus, and mark 100 years since London buses were sent to the Western Front in WWI. Part of the celebration, the Lego Bus Stop was installed just before the Sunday parade in Regent Street, bringing smiles to the faces of passersby.
