A new £4.5M bus station has opened in West Croydon.
The station, designed and constructed in-house by Transport for London (TfL), will have a throughput of up to 23,000 passengers per day. It is a low-rise building designed to fit in with the surrounding environment.
The new facilities include a sheltered waiting area, accessibility improvements and solar panels on the roof of the building.
“The new bus station will provide customers with a safer, more accessible and congenial environment and play a key part in the redevelopment of Croydon town centre,” said TfL director of strategy and contracted services for surface transport Gareth Powell.
“With its greater capacity to meet increasing numbers of bus passengers both now and in the future and sited so conveniently alongside the London Overground station, and tram, it will provide a transport hub which will help regenerate this part of Croydon.”
