TSM Chapter 3, para 17.22 says:
“Where the stop serves frequent or multiple services, or vehicles with different entrance positions, the length of the bay may be increased in increments of 2 m. The legend BUS STOP should be used once for every complete length of 12 m. Under-used stops of excessive length may result in enforcement difficulties.”

So that would infer that the minimum length would be somewhere between 12m and 22m, as you don’t often see “BUS STOP” written twice within the marking.
