The invention concerns a waiting station (1) designed to be set on a pavement (2) located right next to the road or to the track, comprising a protection wall (29) on its front lateral surface. Said station can be acceded to by its lateral faces or from the rear. Its internal space is divided into an ongoing waiting zone (13) preceded by a short-time waiting zone (14). Said station comprises a passage for boarding-disembarking on the road/track side on a threshold (22) physically representing the access door to the vehicle when it has stopped. The threshold (22) is covered by a canopy (25) extending the station roof (9) in a overhang at the vehicle access door, producing a protected access passage to the vehicle. The invention is of interest for those responsible for urban planning and for manufacturers of urban equipment and public transport vehicles.
