Brighouse Bus Station

Update (January 2009): The new £2.38m bus station redevelopment has now started and should be completed early 2009. The new station will have;

  • 24 hour CCTV
  • Electronic notice boards proving real time information
  • More comfortable
  • Enclosed concourse

More than a million journeys are made to and from Brighouse bus station each year. The new bus shelter will hopefully be more comfortable and be subject to less vandalism.

The existing shelters will be demolished and replaced by a modern, six-stand, Drive-In-Reverse-Out (DIRO) facility with an enclosed concourse, electronic information, CCTV monitoring and new, high-quality flooring and seating. A new car park will be provided beside the bus station.

The station is due for redevelopment later this year. More
