Huddersfield Bus Station

Plans being developed for £20 million transformation of Huddersfield Bus Station.

We are developing plans for a £20 million transformation of Huddersfield Bus Station in partnership with Kirklees Council.

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

Kirklees Council is also developing plans for a new entrance canopy, cycle hub and improvements to the public space around the bus station as part of this scheme.

Better shop fronts, real-time bus and rail information to help with onward journeys, and improved safety and security measures are also included in the plans. 

A “living roof” covered in bee-friendly plants and other wildlife-friendly landscaping, secure cycle parking and energy saving features, 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 carers. The facility will 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 Huddersfield Bus Station was held in summer 2021.  Find out more information and view the consultation outcome report.

Further public engagement on this scheme is due to take place later this year (2024). 

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 Huddersfield.
