Application to use Bus - Coach Stops

Since 1 February 2013 Wicklow County Council has been responsible for the issuing and renewing of approval for the use of bus stops, whether existing or proposed.  This is in accordance with SI 12 of 2013 and Section 16 of the Road Traffic Act 2002.  Section 16 transfers the responsibilities for the location of bus stops from An Garda Síochána to the Local Authorities.

Consequently, on receipt of a formal offer of a bus route from the National Transport Authority (NTA), a bus/coach operator must also get approval from the relevant local authority for the use of a particular bus/coach stop location, whether this stop is existing or proposed.

Along with a copy of the formal offer of a bus route from the National Transport Authority (NTA), the bus/coach operator must send a request in writing for the particular bus stop location to Wicklow County Council as follows:

By post to:  Transportation, Water & Emergency Services, Wicklow County Council, County Buildings, Wicklow, Co Wicklow

Or via email (please attach a cover letter) to:

The bus stop application will be assessed against a number of criteria such as safety, connectivity, existing public transport services, quality of footpaths etc.  Based on the submitted information, a decision will be made to accept, amend or reject the bus stop application.  Please note that processing time for applications may take up to a maximum of 4 weeks.

Wicklow County Council will issue the decision letter by email to the NTA and to the bus/coach operator.
