There may be a shelter and/or a bench, and there may or may not be lighting.
A bus stop is often a "request stop": a bus does not stop there unless it is requested. Someone waiting at the stop has to pay attention and give a stop sign to halt the bus, and someone inside has to press a button or ask the driver. In some bus systems with few stops this is not required, there the bus stops anyway.
An extensive combination of bus stops in one location is a bus station or bus depot. It may have a waiting room instead of just shelters.
