Stanley bus stop failing to put commuters ahead of advertisers

Each time I pass by Ma Hang Estate in Stanley, I feel sorry for all the elderly people waiting for a bus, with no benches on which to sit and rest awhile. Some considerate citizens, however, have found a solution and installed discarded chairs at the bus stop.

Would it not be reasonable for those who design/produce and manage bus shelters/terminuses to first take into consideration the needs of the public, and not only those of the advertisers?

In my humble opinion, a good bus shelter should protect from the elements, allow those in need to sit on a decent bench, as well as be aesthetically pleasing. The income generated by the advertising displays would surely cover the costs.
