Bath Bus Station

Bath's new bus station is located near to Bath Spa Railway Station and the Southgate Shopping Centre.

The new Bath Bus Station opened in 7 June, 2009 and replaced the old bus station at Manvers Street. There was considerable controversy over the siting of the bus station as Churchill House, an empty 1920s electricity company building was demolished to make way for the new development.



There are 3 bus zones in Bath: Zone 1 – Central Bath; Zone 2 – Lower Weston including the Royal United Hospital, Moorfields, Widcombe, Lambridge and Camden Road; Zone 3 – the rest of the city of Bath.

National Express services operate from bays 1 and 2. Local First services run from other bays.
