Bus shelters

We maintain bus shelters around the city on behalf of the Northland Regional Council. Maintenance includes repairs and removal of graffiti where it occurs.

Location of bus stops

Where bus stops and shelters are erected is based upon a number of criteria.

  • a list of proposed sites is compiled from the Northland Regional Council, the bus company and the public. These sites can be influenced by a change in bus routes or extra routes being included
  • passengers volumes are then considered – this can define the sort of shelter required
  • sufficient space available for pull off bays and space for a shelter
  • planning issues and timing to implement.

The planning issues are around consultation with the community on the proposed stops and consultation with any immediately affected parties where the proposed shelter is to be erected.
