Bus Stop Audits

Some Local authorities are requesting Bus Stop Audit Reports to be submitted in support of Planning Applications in order for them to assess the appropriateness of their existing assets. We have provided such reports the content of which is required to meet the requirements of Guidance Notes such as Transport for London’s “Accessible Bus Stop Design Guidance” (2006). Our Plans typically therefore include the following:

  • A drawing of the bus stops to show their main features and their immediate surroundings.
  • Kerb face details.
  • Confirmation of access arrangements to the stops for both pedestrians and bus drivers.
  • Details of all street furniture.
  • Details of the bus stops themselves – shelter, seats, ticket machine, real-time bus info. etc.
  • The type of buses which stop there – rigid, bendy bus, etc.
  • Where the bus cage road markings begin and end – lengths, widths, etc
  • Quality of the existing road markings and surfacing – are they worn, do they need re-laying.
  • Details of the street lighting.
  • Any evidence of drainage problems or ponding in passenger waiting areas or within the carriageway.
  • Any parking bays/restrictions either side of the bus stops that might make it difficult for buses to pull into/away from the stop.

The results of our on-site survey and assessment work it recorded and incorporated within a comprehensive Audit report which is submitted in support of the Planning Application.
