Bus stops and shelters

SPT manage more than 3,300 bus shelters and around 11,300 bus stops. SPT is not presently responsible for any bus shelters in Argyll & Bute or Renfrewshire.

Reporting Damage

Whilst regular inspections are carried out, vandalism is a continuous problem and it is difficult for us to find out about every damaged bus stop or shelter.

If you see a bus stop, information case or bus shelter that has been vandalised or damaged in some other way, please let us know, as below.

Please provide as much detail as possible including the bus stop reference number which should be displayed on the bus stop flag.

If the reported damage is not within our area of responsibility, we will pass the report on to the appropriate body.
