ABSTRACT
The article focuses on disorders of pavement made of different materials, caused by increased load on the road at bus stops. In the beginning of this article, we introduce the types of vehicles operated bus and trolleybus routes in Ostrava. The article also deals with the possible effect of the public transport vehicles, as the effect of other vehicles which are moving close to the stop, so the load from them interferes into the cover of the road surface of the stop. Increased weight loads from vehicles has resulted in faster damage to all layers of the road at stops. Finally, the paper recommends materials and possible solutions to this problem.

Keywords: road covers, public transport, bus stops, load, damage, layers of the road
