The new Mansfield Bus Station is here... bigger brighter and £9 million times better
The eye catching new state of the art bus station opened for business on Sunday 31 March 2013 and offers better bus, road and rail links. It is just a three minute walk from both the old bus station and Mansfield market place. See a map showing the location.
The new bus station is part of a package of improvements that Nottinghamshire County Council and Mansfield District Council are delivering to encourage swifter, greener travel in Nottinghamshire.
The County Council, in partnership with Mansfield District Council, will take responsibility for maintaining and managing the bus station.
Below is a photo slideshow showing the stages of development of the new bus station, including photos from the Family Fun Day on 30 March.
The new bus station is a fully enclosed building offering protection from the weather, with comfortable seating and 24 hour CCTV, providing a more relaxed and safer waiting environment.
It has 16 departure bays, and for customer safety and comfort, boarding will be controlled by automatic doors that only open when the bus has arrived.
The station also features:
- a Travel Information Centre selling bus and coach tickets
- a café
- a shop
- free Wi-Fi
- electronic information displays
- fully accessible toilets and baby changing room.
Our toilets are flushed using rainwater to help conserve water and we have sustainable under floor heating.
In addition to electronic information displays, printed timetable information and an online journey planning kiosk, the bus station staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide travel information.
