For more information on what makes a bus stop accessible see below

The main criteria that make a bus stop accessible are as follows;

1. Height of the curb and making sure the pavement is even with
enough room for the bus ramp to be able to deploy safely

2. The yellow bus stop box (painted on the road) must be in line with
the bus stop, of the right size for a bus to pull into the bus stop and must not have any obstructions such as parking bays

3. Bus stops must be not have Street clutter (bins, street signs or
lamp posts) or street furniture (bench) that may prevent the bus ramp from deploying
