This consultation closed on 11 June 2021. Thanks for your feedback.

About the project

Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) guidelines require that all bus stops comply with accessibility standards. Council is currently undertaking an assessment of bus stops within the Shire to review both accessibility and general community feedback in relation to safety, usage, etc.

This project focuses on formal Council bus stops as well as the many informal stops used by school and community buses. Many of these stops are not accessible to people with a disability, are in poor condition and do not provide shelter from the weather. We asked you to provide feedback on these bus stops and locations that buses may use to turn around.

Survey Results

We received 78 responses and the key themes were (in no particular order):

  • school bus stops are a priority
  • safe pedestrian access to stops
  • maintenance concerns (e.g. graffiti, rubbish, overgrown vegetation)
  • signage
  • protection from weather for passengers
  • safety of road users
  • parking for school drop off / pick up
  • speed limits around bus zones
  • space for bus pullover and turning
  • changes to bus stop locations

Next steps

Council are currently reviewing responses, analysing stop priority and preparing a staged program. The program will be rolled out over the next 3 financial years (i.e. 21/22, 22/23, 23/24). This program is not fixed and will be reviewed as new information is received.

Tell us about your bus stops and shelters

6 months

We're upgrading our bus stops and shelters.

Drop the pin on the bus stop you use (or don't use) and answer a few short questions. We have populated the map with existing bus stops.  

Tip: Select the plus icon + to reveal the pins. Drag the pin to the location. 

Tell us about

  • An existing bus stop or shelter you use.
  • Where you would like to add a new bus stop.
  • A bus stop that you think could be removed.
  • A location where the bus may turn around and any feedback you have about this.

Your feedback will be used to help us prioritise upgrades. 

Please note, all feedback you share on the map will be public. The survey tool is provided as an alternative. 

CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.
