  • 1.  Bus Stop Signs

    Posted 15 August 2018 22:17
    I have always been of the understanding that councils are responsible for all bus stop infrastructure including signs (both regulatory and non-regulatory). Our local bus operator, Busways, has recently advised of a new clause in their contract with Transport for NSW:

    Item 6.1 "For all Bus Stop Signage in place as at the Commencement Date (of the current contract - 01/06/2016), maintain Bus Stop Signage, including but not limited to:
    • Repair;
    • Replacement;
    • Cleaning;
    • Graffiti removal"
    Can anyone please clarify the responsibilities for councils/bus operators at bus stops, particularly in regional areas?
