The Voice of Lincoln: Your verdict on the new city bus station

This story is over

Lincoln Central Bus Station officially opened earlier this week. We asked the people of Lincoln for their views on the finished result.

The new station, which opened on January 29 after 18 months of work, has 14 bus bays, its own independent cafe and new public toilets with changing facilities.

The Lincolnite visited the station, which is part of the £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub, to ask people if they were satisfied with the new facility.

Many people were thrilled with the refurbishment, taking a particular liking to new features such as the coffee shop and indoor seating.

Hundreds of readers shared their thoughts on social media following the official opening of the station yesterday.

Jane Kent said: “It is a great looking building and is a great addition to our city, however £30 million on a building for people to wait for a bus when there are homeless people sleeping on the streets of Lincoln, well done Lincoln City Council money well spent.”

Stephen Clark added: “All looks very good and I’m sure most welcome.”

Joanne McGough added: “I take a disabled child to town by bus as it’s a good experience for him, and now we can stay longer in town due to the fab new changing places!

“Well done Lincoln for catching up with the times!”

John Hackney commented: “Looking good, especially compared to the other one [previous bus station].

“I do question the use of the word hub though because there is no physical link to the train station or anything else.”
