A bus stop is a place where buses stop for passengers to board or leave a bus. These are normally positioned beside the road and are distinct from off-highway facilities such as bus stations.Bus stops infrastructure ranges from a simple pole and sign, to a rudimentary shelter, to sophisticated structures.The usual minimum is a pole mounted flag with suitable name/symbol. Bus stop shelters may have a full or partial roof, supported by a two, three or four sided construction. Modern stops are mere steel and glass/perspex constructions, in rural area bus stops may be wooden or brick built.
Most bus stops are identified with a metal sign attached to a pole or light standard. Some stops are plastic strips strapped on to poles and others involve a sign attached to a bus shelter. The signs are often identified with a picture of a bus and/or with the words bus stop.
