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

Initial survey work is now complete. We are awaiting submission of the final report and will provide an update in due course.

Demolition of the adjacent NCP multi-storey car park on Hall Ings is underway, which will allow Bradford Council to move forward with elements of its plan to redevelop the station frontage.

Bus Services

In total, 1,200 buses per day have been moved from the Interchange to around 45 alternative bus stops within the city.

A full list of alternative bus stops can be found here:

We encourage all passengers to check before they travel by going to

Temporary arrangements

Over 100 signs 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 means passengers are able to purchase and top up cards. More than 250 MCard products have been sold since installation.

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.

Bus station travel centre staff are working from the rail ticket office to assist customers with bus passes and to provide information. Staff are offering advice and support to around 50 passengers per day.

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.
