New bus station opens today
Wolverhampton’s new state-of-the-art Â£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 whenÂ adjacent stands are occupied, which should mean less dleays for passengers.
There is improved access for passengersÂ who will be able to get safely to all of theÂ bus stands without having to cross any ofÂ the bus lanes. Passengers will now accessÂ their bus stand via covered pedestrianÂ walkways equipped with glass doors thatÂ automatically open when buses arrives,Â as well as providing shelter in badÂ weather.
The bus station has three large, glass enclosed passenger waiting areas, with aÂ light and spacious concourse at the entrance.
It also includes a Travel Information Centre,Â public toilets, and offices. The complex willÂ also include a newsagent and WH SmithsÂ 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.
