Bus stops

We're renewing our bus stops to make them safe and compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act.

We're spending $400,000 on bus stop upgrades.

See our 2019/20 bus stops proposed for renewal

Council does not operate bus services, but we are responsible for the bus stop areas. We're renewing bus stops in the City of Charles Sturt to be compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). This means they are suitable for people with most disabilities to use.

Legislation requires that all bus stops be compliant with the DDA by 2022. A shelter is not a DDA requirement of a bus stop.

You can read our Bus Stops Asset Management Plan for more information about how we're managing these assets.

Managing our bus shelters 

Most bus shelters are owned by the Department for Planning Transport & Infrastructure (DPTI), or Adshel (those with advertising panels).

Through an agreement, Council is responsible for the maintenance of DPTI owned bus shelters. If one is in poor condition and repairs are possible, it will be placed on a maintenance schedule.

If the shelter requires replacement, Council will advise the DPTI. If the DPTI does not provide Council with the necessary funding, we will remove it from the bus stop so the area is safe.

Bus shelter renewal can include:

  • reconstructing the bus stop area surface
  • tactile ground surface indicators (TGSIs)
  • lighting
  • seats and bins
  • access paths, manoeuvring areas and passing areas
  • ramps, handrails and grab rails
  • kerb ramps
  • repair, removal, or replacement of bus shelters
  • symbols and signs
