A consultation is underway over plans to transform Huddersfield Bus Station.
With plans for an improved interior, better accessibility and upgraded entrances, The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with Kirklees Council, is obtaining feedback on the proposed transformation of the Huddersfield Bus Station building and its surroundings.
The consultation, which runs until Sunday 12th September, will be seeking feedback on initial proposals for the bus station, which will help shape the development of more detailed plans.
Huddersfield Bus Station is a key transport hub in Kirklees providing connections within the local area and across the region. Before the pandemic it was one of the busiest bus stations in West Yorkshire, with over 37,000 bus station users per day on average in 2018-19.
Responses to the ‘Huddersfield Blueprint’ public consultation in 2019 revealed people’s concerns about the appearance and accessibility of the bus station. Having opened in 1974, some parts of the bus station need modernising to improve its appearance and the facilities for people living, studying, working in and visiting Huddersfield.
The Mayor of West Yorkshire has also visited Huddersfield Bus Station to promote engagement with the public consultation: The video is included at the end of this article.
