New Exit Leeds BS

12 June 2017

Work starting Monday 12 June

Work to change how buses exit Leeds Bus station is underway.

Forecast to be completed in September, the new exit will mean buses leaving the bus station directly onto St. Peter’s Street. This change is being introduced to improve reliability and journey times, particularly on bus services heading for the south and east of the city and beyond.

Changes to departure stands in preparation for the work on the new exit have already been introduced to assist passengers.

Managed by West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Leeds Bus Station is used by around 25,000 people per day and is a key gateway to the city for both commuters and visitors.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Chair Cllr Keith Wakefield said:

“People tell us that punctuality and reliabilityare among their main considerations and this work has been designed to ensure buses are better able to avoid delays when exiting the Bus Station.

“The work, which started today, is not expected to have any effect on bus services while it is being carried out, but there will be a noticeable improvement when the new exit opens in September.”

Leeds’ 26-stand Bus Station has a Travel Centre, MCard ticket machines, baby changing facilities, a café, cash machines, disabled toilets, an Information Help Point, newsagent, photo booths, shops, toilets and a taxi rank.
