 Summary:
 A bus terminal is the point where a bus route starts or ends and in general, those are facilities which represent the door of the city and bring the first impression to visitor as a focal point at the entrance of every city. Purpose of this study is to research current condition of bus terminals in Bosnia and Herzegovina and present findings compared with modern global trends aimed to improve the quality of current condition, meet the standards, and fulfil the needs of diverse stakeholders. Analysis covers 20 case studies, 15 worldwide and 5 local bus stations. Case studies are examined through the desk top analysis of documentation combined with site visits and in situ analysis. After the analysis of current condition, research further considers on worldwide examples of bus terminals and their designs. The analysis covers modern global trends in terminals’ design, including general urban, architectural, and structural approach in analysis. Emphasis of the analysis is dedicated to relationship between structural design and architectural expression. The goal is to show dependence of bus terminals’ operability, considering functional attributes influenced by architectural expression and structural systems, including their impact on creating memorable and noticeable landmark.
