Bradford Interchange update - 31 May 2024

Bradford Interchange bus station will remain closed until at least September to allow for more in-depth surveys to be completed. The results will inform a long-term decision about its future. For further details about Bradford Interchange read the press release and report by the Combined Authority.

We took the precautionary measure to close the bus station in January after some damage was discovered.

We recognise that the closure of the bus station has created significant disruption and impact on businesses and residents, including those with disabilities and the visually impaired, and we are seeking to address this as a matter of priority.

The Combined Authority has put public safety at the heart of its decision making and is working with Bradford Council to minimise disruption to the travelling public and wider city centre.

Temporary arrangements

Signage and support staff are in place around the city to help passengers find where they need to go.

Staff also undertake regular patrols to ensure any missing or damaged signage is replaced.

Bus shelters are in place on Nelson Street and Bridge Street.

An MCard ticketing machine in Bradford Interchange rail station, along with a full Metro Travel Centre service located in the Northern Rail Ticket Office, mean that passengers are able to purchase and top up cards. Leaflets with new bus stop locations for each service are also available at the Travel Centre.

Extra provisions made for passengers

Our Safer Travel PCSOs have been deployed to bus shelters and bus stops in the city and are being supported by Bradford’s Neighbourhood Policing Team and other routine police patrols.

Efforts to minimise city centre impact

The rail station is open as normal, with access via the ramp footpath on Bridge Street. Rail services are not affected by the closure.

We are working with Bradford Council and Network Rail to minimise disruption to transformation work that is happening in the city centre.

We continue to work closely with bus operators to minimise disruption for passengers.
