Suspend a bus stop

You must apply to suspend a bus stop when carrying out roadworks that prevent the use of a bus stop. This includes work on the footway, for example tree maintenance.

Notice

We need a minimum of one week’s notice before the start of the suspension of the bus stop so it can be taken out of commission or a temporary stop installed.

Bus stop closure requests made with less than 1 week’s notice will be charged double the standard rate. 

Costs

Closure of a bus stop cost:

  • £250 per stop for the first 2 stops
  • £80 per additional stop
  • £100 for a temporary stop that requires additional infrastructure, such as pole in barrel

You’ll be charged £600 if you close a bus stop without authorisation.

Cancellation of a bus stop suspension is:

  • free with more than 6 days’ notice
  • charged at £70 charge per stop with 1 to 6 days’ notice
  • charged at full cost of the original request with less than 24 hours’ notice

A £70 fee applies for each stop if you want to amend your application.
