Apply to suspend a bus stop


Anyone undertaking works on the highway that will obstruct a bus stop must complete an application to request a temporary bus stop closure and, if applicable, a temporary bus stop to replace it.

Before you apply

To enable us to process your application as quickly as possible, there are some key pieces of information that you should have. This includes:

  • the bus stop location
  • time and length of the bus stop suspension
  • whether a temporary bus stop will be required
  • your relevant permit number to perform works on the highway
After your application

Following the approval of your application and payment of the associated fee, the Passenger Transport Group will arrange for the bus stop to be closed and, if required, for a temporary bus stop to be put in place.

Please note that there is an additional third party charge incurred for the closure of a bus stop as well as the hire of a temporary bus stop.

If you require the application to be extended, you will need to re-apply and you will incur an additional charge.

At the end of the application form you have to pay the administration fee below. You cannot submit the application until you have paid the fee.

  • £75
  • Non refundable application fee

Once you have all the required information and your payment card ready, you can apply to temporarily close or move a bus stop.
