Provision of temporary bus stops

There is not normally a charge for this, although we reserve the right to recover the cost of replacing temporary bus stop furniture as a result of theft up to £50 per stop.

Please do not send any money with the application form, we will invoice you at the end of the process.


How to apply

Where possible, applications should be made at least two weeks in advance and must include a map (scale of 1:50,000) clearly marking the stop(s) you are applying to suspend along with proposed location of temporary stop(s) (if required). In some instances it may be safer and more convenient to direct customers to nearby permanent stops if they are within close walking distance.
