Public transport stops as special architectural forms in the urban environment are reviewed. Based on the analysis of foreign analogues, in accordance with the expressive means, the existing projects of stops are classified into subspecies as artistic, thematic, ecological and futuristic. As a result of the research, the conclusion is made about the influence of certain factors on the formation of pavilions: 1) the need to implement the priority requirements of different level users to the spatial planning structure of the stop complex, such as: transparency, control, protection, safety, accessibility, information, rational use of space, comfort and services; 2) the character of the building; 3) ecology requirements; 4) used structural and decoration materials; 5) national traditions; 6) aesthetic tastes and preferences of citizens and city administration; 7) climate conditions. The use of metal (steel, aluminum,) and constructive principles of collection require corresponding design approaches. It is necessary to find a specific stylistic solution, which, being repeated many times, will create a system of visual accents along the urban transport route. The appropriate design would turn public transport stops into potential accents of the urban environment, the analogues of urban sculpture, which not only fulfil their daily necessary function and contain the most modern electronic means of information and control, but also contribute to the emotional comfort of passengers.
