The new bus station opened today Saturday 13 May.
A spokesperson for Nottingham City Transport said:
‘We were delighted to welcome Lorenzo to become the first passenger to board a bus in the smart new Bulwell Bus Station, where he was welcomed on board by our Driver of the Year, Tika, who drove the first bus through the Bus Station.
‘Lorenzo is close to achieving his aim of riding on every bus in Nottingham and having the honour of being the first passenger is a fitting celebration of his forthcoming achievement.’
The bus station brings many benefits:

- Improved accessibility for wheelchairs
- Multiple seating options that cater to varying mobility needs
- Improved efficiency for bus operators
- A more welcoming feel and overall environment
- New greenery was introduced in planters along the footpaths to increase biodiversity
The temporary stops located on Bulwell High Road and Main Street are no longer being used, please head to the new Bus Station for your journeys.
