Buchanan bus station

Buchanan Bus Station is the main bus terminus in Glasgow, Scotland.

The bus station is the terminus for journeys between the city and other towns in United Kingdom and international journeys. It was originally built in 1977, close to the former site of Buchanan Street railway station which was closed in the 1960s by the Beeching Axe. The construction of the station realigned the intersection between Parliamentary Road and Sauchiehall Street, the former being renamed as Killermont Street, which runs along the southern edge of the station.

It is operated by the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, who inherited it from their predecessor agency, Strathclyde Passenger Transport, who in turn acquired it from Scottish Citylink in 1993.[1] This development saw the consolidation of all bus services in Glasgow to the station, with all routes transferred from the Anderston Centre terminus, which was subsequently closed.

It is the biggest bus station in Scotland, with around 1,700 bus journeys departing from the station every day, with over 40,000 passengers using these journeys on a daily basis. It is within walking distance of Glasgow Queen Street railway station and Cowcaddens and Buchanan Street subway stations. There is a bus link serving the bus station, Queen Street and Central stations.[2]
