Edinburgh Council has signed a £5 million, 10 year advertising contract with JCDecaux covering many elements of the Edinburgh street scape. As part of the deal around 400 bus shelters are being replaced – but only the ones with advertising panels. The roll out of the new bus shelters is due to be complete by the end of October 2015.
There have been many issues with the bus shelters, such as not providing much shelter, seats too high, long bus stops replaced with shorter ones and many others.
- New bus stops that do not meet the councils current design standards
- New bus stops that have already been replaced following intervention
- Existing bus stops that do not meet the councils new design standards but are not currently being replaced
Below are Living Streets Edinburgh interpretation of the Edinburgh Councils design standards regarding bus stops.
