One might think bus stop planning is a straightforward exercise, but this document shows that it requires a significant amount of planning to get it right:

TRANSIT COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM
The nation's growth and the need to meet mobility,
environmental, and energy objectives place demands on public
transit systems. Current systems, some of which are old and in need
of upgrading, must expand service area, increase service frequency,
and improve efficiency to serve these demands. Research is
necessary to solve operating problems, to adapt appropriate new
technologies from other industries, and to introduce innovations
into the transit industry. The Transit Cooperative Research Program
(TCRP) serves as one of the principal means by which the transit
industry can develop innovative near-term solutions to meet
demands placed on it.



really? we need government to tell us how a bus stop needs to be done?
What technology do you need to have a place for a bus to stop?

We did it the easy way. When the County of Lebanon Transit Authority decided to put a transfer station in the center of a city owned parking lot at 7th and Willow Sts. in Lebanon, PA, the city engineer and I took a 4512 to the lot. I spent a couple of hours driving it in and out of the lot while he marked the turning radius needed and the length needed for the island. Marked the dimensions with spray paint on the asphalt. Worked out just right and only took about a week to construct it.
