New bus station opens today

Wolverhampton’s new state-of-the-art £22.5 million bus station opens today.

The modern passenger facility has 19 bus stands laid out in a saw tooth arrangement. This makes it much easier for buses to access stops when adjacent stands are occupied, which should mean less dleays for passengers.

There is improved access for passengers who will be able to get safely to all of the bus stands without having to cross any of the bus lanes. Passengers will now access their bus stand via covered pedestrian walkways equipped with glass doors that automatically open when buses arrives, as well as providing shelter in bad weather.

The bus station has three large, glass enclosed passenger waiting areas, with a light and spacious concourse at the entrance.

It also includes a Travel Information Centre, public toilets, and offices. The complex will also include a newsagent and WH Smiths store

As part of the Network Review undertaken by operator Centro a number of service changes have taken place affecting buses that pass through Wednesfield.

Some routes now have new numbers and others will call at different stops – read our previous article to find out about route changes and visit the National Express website for new timetables.

Hopefully WV11.co.uk goes some way to fixing this!
