In brief: Varies

Different bacteria produce bacterial meningitis, so there is not a universal answer to this question.
Nevertheless, usually close contact with human secretions is necessary to produce meningitis. The bacteria that commonly cause bacterial meningitis due not typically survive for a long period of time outside the human body.
