Bradford Interchange update

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

Safety continues to be our top priority, and as the bus station remains closed, please see our latest update on the situation below. We thank passengers for their patience while we work hard to resolve the issue and limit disruption.

Latest developments

Bradford Interchange bus station will remain closed until further notice as more detailed surveys are undertaken to determine the viability of its future.

Initial survey work was undertaken in January and February after the bus station was closed after some concrete fell in the basement, however further, more extensive surveys are now required.

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.
