Bus stands are important in ensuring that buses can run reliably. Bus drivers are trained to switch off their engine when they reach a bus stand. Notices are displayed in bus garages and at bus stands themselves to reinforce this. TfL has raised this issue with the operator of route 277 although it would also be useful if you could forward to TfL any correspondence you have received about the bus stand at Highbury Corner.
