The provision and maintainance of bus shelters across the district is split between ourselves, parish councils and Derbyshire County Council (bus stops that do not have a bus shelter).
We aim to make sure all our bus shelters are safe, clean and in a proper state of repair. Town Centre shelters are cleaned twice weekly and all other shelters are cleaned weekly, i.e. washed, graffiti removed and swept. We have introduced aBus Shelter policy which explains exactly what we are responsible for.
All our bus shelters are designated as Smoke Free Public Areas in accordance with The Health Act 2006 Chapter 28, Part 1 - Smoking, Chapter 1 - Smoke-Free Premises, Places and Vehicles. The appropriate no-smoking sign complying with the requirements of Section 6 of the above Chapter are displayed in the bus shelters.
If you want to request a new bus shelter, this must be made to us stating the reasons why a new shelter is required. A new shelter will only be provided if there is a proven demand indicated by the status of the route and its’ usage or representations from local residents.
It also needs to adhere to the standard specified by Derbyshire County Council’s Specification for Pre-fabricated illuminated Bus Shelters (BS 1/05), except in conservation areas where an alternative design may be required.
For any problems, issues or requests for bus shelters, please telephone our Contact Centres on 01246 242424 or complete our on-line form.
