An application is required for bus stops 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 £120 per day, per stop, up to a maximum of £240 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 £120 per day, per stand, £240 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.
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 £50 per stop.
Please do not send any money with the application form, we will invoice you at the end of the process.
