Halifax Bus Station redevelopment

Work continues on a new £20.5 million state-of-the-art facility delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority in partnership with Calderdale Council.

Latest update

Last autumn, construction of the new Halifax Bus Station  reached a major milestone, with some bus services, a new travel centre and accessible toilet facilities opening to passengers.

This was an exciting step forward for the £20.5 million investment into Halifax town centre.

Ten of the new station’s 19 bus stands are open and more services returned earlier this year.  Some bus services  continue to run from stops in the town centre until the transformational new station is complete in summer 2024. 

Construction work  continues , and the next milestones will include a newsagent and attracting tenants for the station’s other retail units.Alongside improved facilities, safety measures and better access, the new station will enable passengers to switch between bus services more easily.

It also has solar panels, cycle parking, a new “green roof” covered in bee-friendly plants and more green space for people to enjoy, contributing to West Yorkshire’s aim to be carbon neutral by 2038.

Since the autumn, people have been able to access a new “Changing Places” toilet, which has extra features for people with a range of disabilities, including a hoist and height adjustable changing bench. 

Passengers are being asked to visit the West Yorkshire Metro website or call 0113 245 7676 for travel information.
