The IRU International Commission on Technical Affairs (CIT) has developed International Guidelines for Bus and Coach Station design and operation which have a significant and disproportionate impact upon bus and coach station operation and throughput of vehicles and passengers.
It also includes examples of safe practices throughout the road transport sector.
The Guidelines are primarily based on UK Guidance for the safe design and operation of Bus Stations and Interchanges which was completed in 2011 and updated in 2013.
The aim of these guidelines is to enable key stakeholders involved in the road transport of passengers to understand the safety and operational risks involved in operating and using bus and coach stations. When transport stakeholders implement the Guidelines from the outset, these will influence sustainable improvements in bus and coach station design, operation and road safety standards.
