When setting up a bus stop...
1 It should not be too near or adjacent to traffic junctions and pedestrian crossings.
2 It should not be located at bends or crests in the road. This is to ensure that the bus driver has a clear view of passengers at the bus stop and vice versa.
3 It should provide sufficient shelter for passengers to protect them from the weather.
4 Where possible, it is best to install a "bus lay-by", a recessed bus bay which allows buses to stop without obstructing the flow of traffic.
5 Buses should be able to draw up close to the edge of the kerb to let passengers board.
