How to get a sneak peek of new state-of-the-art Lincoln bus station

The multi-million-pound Lincoln Central Bus Station will be opening its doors for a special public preview this week.

Visitors will be the first to tour the new state-of-the-art bus station, part of City of Lincoln Council’s £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub project.

Preview days will give people the chance to learn about services and ask questions on Friday, January 19 between 8am and 2pm and Saturday, January 20 from 10am until 4pm.

The bus station officially opens on Sunday, January 28.

It includes 14 bus bays that will see approximately 650 departures each weekday.

The Transport Hub also includes a 1,000 space car park, improvements to the city’s railway station forecourt, a new access for vehicles into the railway station car park and pedestrian plaza linking Sincil Street and High Street to the railway station.

Kate Ellis, Major Developments Director at City of Lincoln Council, said: “We are proud to present our new state-of-the-art bus station to the city’s residents and visitors as part of our vision to deliver Lincoln’s ambitious future and drive economic growth.

“During these preview days, members of staff from City of Lincoln Council, Stagecoach and PC Coaches will be on site to answer questions about the bus station, as well as provide information on timetables, bus lanes and offer guidance.

“The public will also be able to view Lincoln’s very first Changing Places toilet, providing a space for those of Lincoln’s residents and visitors who are unable to use standard accessible toilets.

“We look forward to welcoming the public to the facility which we hope will ensure a comfortable journey to and from the city for everyone.”

The bus station will be in operation on Sunday 28 January and an official opening will take place at 9am on Monday, January 29.

The Tentercroft Street temporary bus station will revert back into car parking spaces in the weeks following the opening.
