Latest developments

Initial survey work is now complete. We are currently working through these and will provide an update once we have determined the next steps to be taken.

It is crucial we get this right to ensure public safety, limit disruption and protect taxpayers’ money.

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.

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, and are working to increase capacity so that more customers are able to buy MCard tickets from the ticket office. Metro branding is also being secured to increase awareness of the temporary travel centre.

Combined Authority staff have been working with Bradford officers to try to improve accessibility for passengers in the streets around the Interchange. Work has also been ongoing with visual impairment organisations to review pedestrian routes to stops.

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.
