The new transport interchange for Bolton opened to the public on Sunday 3 September.

The old bus station on Moor Lane closed after the final service at midnight on 2 September and the site will be passed to Bolton Council.

Bolton Interchange provides a step change in the quality of facilities provided for passengers, including better customer information, enhanced waiting and ticketing facilities, and a light, bright and safe environment. It also has a café, convenience store, cash machine and free Wi-Fi.

A Cycle Hub is provided offering secure storage for 48 bikes, with CCTV and swipe card access, for £10 membership per year.

Along with public toilets and baby changing facilities, it has been carefully designed to be fully accessible, with level or ramped flooring throughout and enhanced ‘Changing Places’ facilities.
