It's marketing/an advertisement--not really a public service, I can't fathom that this will go more-widespread.
This part is interesting:

This is in contrast to Appleâ€™s iPhone 4 which has the longest-lasting battery life among current-gen smartphones, lasting over two days with moderate usage.
It's true, my optimus, with "moderate" use (i.e., 3g on all day, using bluetooth, watching movies and listening to music, web browsing, a little bit of tethering but not much) is down to ~30% battery life at the end of the day. But it's still alive and kicking by the time I get home, at which point I charge it. Or I can charge it from my work computer during the day, or pretty much anywhere. Having a charge port at a bus stop that you can use for all of 5 minutes is pretty impractical--but if they want to do it, I'm not going to argue.
I am also calling BS on the iphone 4's "lasting over two days" with moderate usage--my buddy's iphone 4 lasts maybe a day and change, pretty close to mine, with similar usage.
I'm not saying that I'm against phones being more power-efficient, I just don't think bus stop power receptacles are necessary.
