Stoke-on-Trent City Council has decided to charge a 30p access fee for people who want to use the toilets at Hanley’s new bus station, this news report reveals.
Brian Edwards, the council’s safe and sustainable transport manager, said: "At the moment the toilets can be used free of charge but this will be rectified once a few modifications have been made to the turnstiles. The money we make from the toilets will go towards the bus station to help us fund cleaners and security and to stop any anti-social behaviour.”
Imposing an access fee and enforcing it with the help of a dedicated turnstile is one of the best solutions out there in terms of security (and also revenue), and this is where Toilet Turnstiles comes into play.
The Coin Operated Turnstiles manufactured by Toilet Turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also comes equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
