Bus Stop Style Guide

PPK Environment & Infrastructure

PPK Environment & Infrastructure Pty Ltd was engaged by the State Transit Authority (STA) of New South Wales to prepare a style guide for bus stops in urban areas.The objectives of the style guide, as set out in STA's brief, are "to assist both State Transit and local government in providing consistent, safe and effective bus stops." Issues to be considered in the preparation of the style guide included: passenger information; identification of service point; useful, safe, and easily-maintained infrastructure; and consistent design that is accessible to as many potential passengers as practical.

Part 1 of the Style Guide focuses on design requirements for bus stops and bus stop facilities. Part 2 contains discussion of issues relevant to the preparation of the style guide, development of a functional hierarchy of bus stops, and bus stop classification.

This document is based on an international literature review, a review of Australian and STA best practice, and takes into consideration Disability Discrimination legislation (and the Attorney-General's Department Draft Guidelines).
