Bus shelters and stops

Information on bus stops and shelters in the borough

All bus stops and shelters in the borough are owned and managed by us.

Apply for a new bus shelter or stop

To consider a location for a new bus stop or shelter, the Council needs to be sure there is enough demand for it. This is based on passenger numbers or passing services.

We will also consider if a bus stop/shelter will suit the location and that the positioning will not affect accessibility guidelines, sight lines and will be subject to available funding.

For bus shelters, there will also need to be a consultation process carried out with local residents, businesses and councillors to ask for their opinions and where they can offer their objections or propose another location that they think might be suitable.

To suggest a location for a bus shelter, please contact us.
