Latest Bradford Interchange update (March 27)

Our latest update on the closure of Bradford Interchange bus station.

27 March 2024

Travel centre update

In partnership with Northern Rail, we are now able to offer a full travel centre service, accepting both cash and card payments, for MCard ticket, pass and bus information. This is in addition to the ticket machine which enables customers to load products on to their MCard.

Further closure information

Bradford Interchange bus station will remain closed for a further three months 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.
