Dewsbury Bus Station

Plans being developed for £13.9 million transformation of Dewsbury Bus Station.

We are developing plans for a £13.9 million transformation of Dewsbury Bus Station in partnership with Kirklees Council.

The full building renovation will provide passengers with a more accessible, energy efficient and modern bus station.

Plans also include more shops, better real-time information displays including the introduction of rail services to help with onward journeys, and improved safety and security features. 

A “living roof” covered in plants, cycle parking and energy saving improvements, such as solar panels and an air source heat pump, are among the environmentally friendly proposals. 

Passengers will also be able to access a “Changing Places” toilet, which has extra features to meet the needs of people with a range of disabilities and their carer’s.  The toilets provide enough space and the right equipment, including a hoist and height adjustable changing bench.

The first round of public consultation on the plans for Dewsbury Bus Station was held in summer 2021.  Find out more information and view the consultation outcome report.

A second round of public engagement on this scheme was held in in summer 2023.  Find out more information and view the engagement outcome report.

These improvements are being funded through the Combined Authority’s Transforming Cities Fund programme, which is aimed at making it easier for people to walk, cycle and use public transport in and around Dewsbury.
