An application is required for bus stops or bus stands to be suspended to allow for works to be undertaken by utility companies and private developers.
What are the charges for?
A charge is set by Surrey County Council to help administer the stop suspension (a charge is already levied by London Buses for the suspension of their stops in Surrey).
What is the charge?
Bus stop suspensions are charged at £150 per day, per stop, up to a maximum of £300 for two days or more. Please note, a charge will still be made for failure to carry out the works within the agreed period unless adequate notice is given to the Local Bus Team direct.
Bus stand suspensions are charged at £150 per day, per stand, £300 for two days plus £60 charge for each additional day. Please note, a charge will still be made for failure to carry out the works within the agreed period unless adequate notice is given to the Local Bus Team direct. These charges are due to the operational requirements needed to find alternative layover points.
Diversions of significant disruption or duration may incur additional charges.
Provision of temporary bus stops
There is not normally a charge for this, although we reserve the right to recover the cost of replacing temporary bus stop furniture as a result of theft up to £100 per stop.
Where possible, applications should be made at least one week in advance. Please complete the attached application form and email it to all of the recipients listed on the form along with your purchase order.
Please supply individual bus stop identity details. Bus stop ID's can be found on Google Maps by clicking on the blue bus stop icon at the desired location. Bus Stop ID's within Surrey begin with "SUR", for example "SURAPWAT".
Each application must include contact details for your site agent.
Please do not send any money with the application form, we will invoice you at the end of the process, but you must include your company purchase order number.
If a bus stop suspension is no longer required or is delayed, it is the requestor's responsibility to notify the Local Bus Team in adequate time to cancel. Failure to do so will result in charges being incurred.
Where possible please supply a copy of your traffic management plans.
Alternatively, please post hard copies to:
Surrey County Council
Local Bus Team
35 Guildford Road
