The Bus Fountain was bordered by a glass wall that reflected seating that faced the fountain. The holes in the floor are the holes up through which water is projected when a bus moves below.

The sign for the Bus Fountain was attached to the fence bordering the sidewalk near one end of the fountain. It Read:

BUS FOUNTAIN
Environmental Artist Ned Kahn's bus fountain registers the movement of buses by activating water jets as buses pass under sensors on the Bus Deck below the park.

The water sprayed up through the floor of the Bus Fountain, which indicated that a bus had just moved below this point.
