Sheffield Interchange

Sheffield Interchange is the main bus station in central Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. The facility is served by buses operating across the Sheffield region, as well as National Express coaches which connect Sheffield with many destinations across the United Kingdom. At the northern end of the Interchange is Castle Square tram stop, serving all three Stagecoach Supertram routes. A short distance away via a signposted covered walkway is Sheffield railway station, proving train services to locations across the country.

The majority of services use the Central Bus Station (CBS) site. However, the Interchange also includes two other sites, on Flat Street and Arundel Gate. Both of these are adjacent to and within walking distance of the main CBS site. Directly next to CBS is the Archway Centre, which contains information centres, ticket kiosks, toilets, and a W H Smith store, amongst others.

History

Formerly called Pond Street bus station, it was opened in 1936. In 1956, covered accommodation was built, replacing the collection of bus stops. From 8 October 1960 it stopped sharing its accommodation with the Sheffield Tramway. In the early 1990s, work began on the reconstruction of the bus station and was renamed Sheffield Interchange. In the early 2000s a large section of the Interchange was demolished due to under use and was subsequently redeveloped. This area is now home to the Digital Campus.

Present

As well as containing around 30 bus stops it also has an information desk, Ponds Forge).

Services

Coach services

Sheffield Interchange also has several dedicated coach stands (E1 to E6) which are used by services beginning and terminating at the interchange, as well as several others which are passing through. Stand E1 is the primary pick up/drop off point and this is where the National Express office is located. This should not be confused with the Ticket Office, which is located in the Archway Centre. Sheffield Interchange is also served by a limited number of Stagecoach Express coach routes, as well as other lesser known coach operators. National Express, the primary user, uses the interchange for the following routes:[1][2][3]
