The National Bus Strategy makes clear that we expect Bus Service Improvement Plans (BSIPs) (produced by all English Local Transport Authorities outside London) to review the impact of bus stops and shelters on passenger safety, security and accessibility. The BSIP Guidance requires bus stops to be safe and perceived to be safe by all, and, where necessary, to be well-lit and covered by CCTV, and to show accurate information about services stopping there.
