Second-hand bus shelter for sale?

Above: for what is believed to be the first time in more than 60 years, buses no longer stop in Dradishaw Road. New arrangements, which came into force on August 30, have been greeted with dismay by passengers, many of them elderly, living in Gloucester Avenue and Kent Avenue. The nearest stops for Transdev buses are in Skipton Road and Woodside Road. The company says the two Dradishaw Road stops are lightly-used. Gloucester Road will still be served by the 903 bus operated by Jacksons.
Above: The 'simplified' 762 Transdev route from Ilkley to Keighley will stop in Elliott Street near the junction with Keighley Road. Buses will then turn right into Keighley Road. Most motorists view the junction as a nightmare.
Above: Schools buses in Kirkgate. The new Elliott Street bus stop has been introduced because Keighley-bound 762 buses will no longer use Kirkgate, which has become a blackspot because of parked cars. The Jacksons service will still serve Kirkgate.
