A DISAPPEARING bus stop left passengers confused on Tuesday when their bus failed to pull over because the stop had vanished.
Transport for London said they think the stop, thought to be between Charlton Avenue and Rockhampton Road on Selsdon Road, was stolen. It was an ordinary stop without a shelter.
Maria Gatland, Croham councillor, was told about the missing stop on Wednesday by upset passengers whose bus did not stop. She said it is a popular stop which elderly and disabled passengers rely on.
"I think it's strange and really bad service," Ms Gatland said. She believes a temporary stop is now in place.
Vernon Jones, TfL's Croydon Bus Infrastructure Controller said yesterday: "We believe the missing bus stop on Selsden Road in Croydon has been stolen and we are currently investigating the circumstances of this. We will be contacting the police to report the theft and will look to install a new bus stop as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience to our passengers in the interim."
