Latest Bradford Interchange update

22 February 2024

Bradford Interchange update

We took the precautionary measure to close Bradford Interchange bus station in January after some damage was discovered.

Safety continues to be our top priority, and as the bus station remains closed, please see our latest update on the situation below. We thank passengers for their patience while we work hard to resolve the issue and limit disruption.

Latest developments

The lower concourse of the interchange cannot be used by rail passengers, as this is where much of the surveying is taking place.

We are awaiting an update from the initial survey which has been carried out. We will provide an update on this in due course.

Bus Services

A full list of alternative bus stops can be found here wymetro.com/plan-a-journey/travel-news/bus-travel-alerts/bradfordinterchangeclosed/

We encourage all passengers to check before they travel by going to wymetro.com.

Temporary arrangements

Bus shelters are in place on Nelson Street and Bridge Street.

An MCard ticketing machine was recently installed in Bradford Interchange rail station to ensure passengers are able to purchase and top up cards.

Extra provisions made for passengers

Signage has been subject to removal by vandals, so more signage is being put in place to help passengers find their way. Our Safer Travel PCSOs are being deployed to bus shelters and bus stops in the city and are being supported by Bradford’s Neighbourhood Policing Team and other routine police patrols.

Bus station travel centre staff are working from the rail ticket office to assist customers with bus passes and to provide information.

Efforts to minimise city centre impact

The rail station is open as normal, with access via the ramp footpath on Bridge Street. Rail services are not affected by the closure.

We are working with Bradford Council and Network Rail to minimise disruption to transformation work that is happening in the city centre.

We continue to work closely with bus operators to minimise disruption for passengers.
