Bus Station

Winchester Bus Station Opening 2017

We purchased the bus station in April 2017 and carried out interim works over the Summer months of 2017 following planning.

Improvements have been made to the site for the short-term and implimented changes that will improve the flow of buses through the town and increase pedestrian safety. In the longer-term, the purchase will bring new opportunities and have significant benefits for the regeneration of central Winchester and the continuing provision of bus services.
