Bus travel

Middlesbrough bus station has reopened. It's open 7 days a week, for reduced hours, from 5am until 10pm. Please try to keep left in the bus station.

Buses will be departing from their normal stands. See a list of stands and which buses depart from them.

After the bus station closes at 10pm, you can catch buses from either:

  • Stand Z outside BBC Tees on Newport Road - for buses towards Stockton
  • Brentnall Street outside Brentnall Business Units - for all other buses

Coaches will be departing from stand Z on Newport Road at all times of the day.

Toilets have re-opened, but with a reduced capacity. They will be closed for a short time every hour so we can clean them.

Middlesbrough bus station

The bus station is located in the centre of town, on Newport Road. View the location on Google Maps.

There are entrances from Newport Road and Captain Cook Square, both of which are fully accessible.

The bus station is open 364 days a year, closed only on Christmas Day.

Passengers can travel to destinations across Middlesbrough. Buses also link the town to the Tees Valley and the wider region, including Stockton, Hartlepool, Durham, Newcastle and Scarborough. Visit Connect Tees Valley for a list of routes and bus stop information (under Area Bus Maps).

Long distance coaches to various national destinations including London can be boarded from the upstairs lounge, which is reachable by both stairs and a lift.

There are public toilets, including a Changing Place facility, as well as a number of shops.

The safety of visitors is of the utmost importance, and the council's work in offering security and reassurance to visitors, and reducing crime and disorder in the bus station, has been recognised with the Safer Bus Station award. Middlesbrough is the first bus station in the north east to be given this award.
