Wolverhampton bus station

wolverhampton bus station, wolverhampton bus station address
Wolverhampton Bus Station is the first part of a major public transport interchange in the city centre of Wolverhampton, in the West Midlands region of England

It is managed by Transport for West Midlands TfWM Local bus services operated by various companies serve the bus station which has 19 departure stands and 1 unloading stand The bus station is located halfway between Wolverhampton, St George's Midland Metro tram terminus and Wolverhampton railway station; both are just a short walk away It also features glass-enclosed waiting areas and electronic doors, allowing passengers out of designated pedestrian areas, only when buses are on stand Uniquely, the designs for the station have meant that there is no need for buses and pedestrians paths to cross, due to the 'W' shape of the station

The bus station's enquiry office is now in the main building, but was in the Queen's Building, a grade II listed building, now host to Costa Coffee, but which was formerly the carriage entrance to the railway station1

The Interchange Projectedit

The station, which had existed since 1986, was closed after service finished on 3 April 2010 Building work took place during the ensuing months, in which a new pedestrian bridge linking the railway and bus stations was built, a contraflow system installed along the ring road and the bus station rebuilt The station re-opened on 24 July 2011, which coincided with the Wolverhampton bus network review and marked the end of Phase One of the project Phase Two includes improvements to the railway station, a new hotel, and redevelopment of the canalside area, but a date for this has yet to be finalised

During, December 2014 the next phase of the Interchange project was given the go ahead, the next phase of the project comprises the refurbishment and extension of the Railway Station Car Park, it will see the car parks capacity increased to just over 900 parking spaces, the whole interchange project will see all public transport in Wolverhampton connecting in one place, eventually linking the Bus Station, Railway Station and the Midland Metro234
