There are 16 bus stops along bus route 55. Here you can read more about the bus stops that have been built or redesigned for ElectriCity. You can also find drawings or sketches describing the bus stops and the surrounding areas.
Teknikgatan at Lindholmen is one of two end bus stops on bus route 55. The bus stop is the first of its kind where passenger may get on/off the bus while indoor. In practice this means that instead of wiating for the bus outside you can wait inside protected against wind and rain. You can also visit the café and charge your cell phone via USB. The indoor bus stop is built by Chalmersfastigheter adjacent to the Patricia building. As it is an end stop this is also where you find one of the charging stations.
In the indoor bus stop there is an interactive touch screen describing the ElectriCity cooperation and a big screen visualizing the charging process.
Lindholmsplatsen is a new bus stop between Kuggen and Lindholmen Science Park. As it is very close to both buildings it is very convenient to catch the 55 if you need to travel towards the city center.
Lindholmen is Gothenburg's most knowledge-intensive and growing area. Since the start in 2000, the area has grown by a large number of businesses and people each year.

Route 55 runs through Frihamnen - a strategically important part of Gothenburg if the inner city is to expand across the river and link up the Kvillestaden, Backaplan, Lindholmen and Ringön quarters. The area will be a hub comprising new workplaces, socially mixed housing and good public transport. The development will be dense and contain a mix of uses. In the future Frihamnen will have some 15 000 inhabitants and an equal amount of work places. For the Gothenburg 400th anniversary in 2021 1 000 appartments shall have been built, 1000 persons will work in the area and parts of the jubilee park Jubileumsparken will be ready. Already now there is a sauna and an outdoor pool – Allmänna badet.

The bus stop is a test arena for noise dampening technology within Controllable Urban Soundscapes, a project in which oases of tranquility are created in the midst of city centres. Traffic disturbances and noise levels are attenuated using advanced technology, and replaced by pleasant sound experiences. The technology concept is tested in parks in London and Gothenburg, and can also be applied to other outdoor areas where a different soundscape is desirable
