A new bus station for Wigan

WIGAN BUS STATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT​

 

 

Temporary bus stops and Travelshop

The existing bus station is currently closed for redevelopment. While construction is taking place temporary bus stops are sited at the following locations:

  • Market Hall layby on New Market Street*
  • Hallgate
  • Richmond Street
  • Downing Street
  • King Street
  • Library Street
  • Parsons Walk

*To accommodate temporary bus stops in the Market Hall layby, taxi services have been temporarily relocated in the town centre.

The temporary stops will mean that, although the existing bus station is closed, passengers can still catch their service nearby.

The TfGM Travelshop has also temporarily moved to Hallgate where we will continue to offer:

  • Travel information, help and assistance
  • System One and Metrolink tickets
  • Under-16 IGO passes
  • Timetables for bus services

These arrangements will be in place until the new bus station opens, which is expected to be at the end of 2018.
