More than 316 bus stops in the Dutch city of Utrecht have been transformed into mini urban havens for bees

The bus stops, which are owned and managed by operator RBL Outdoor on behalf of the local government, have been installed with green roofs to help meet the city’s requirements for healthy urban living.

Green roofs help to capture fine dust and rainwater and encourage biodiversity by providing ideal conditions for bees to thrive.
