Bus travel

Middlesbrough bus station

Middlesbrough bus station is open 7 days a week, from 5am until 12pm.

The bus station is open 362 days a year. It is closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, and Boxing Day if it falls on a weekend.


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.

Travel destinations

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). For timetables, please visit the websites of individual bus operators.

Long distance coaches to various national destinations, including London and Manchester, leave from the bus station express lounge between the hours of 5am and 12pm. Outside of these hours, or when the bus station is closed, they leave from stand Z (outside BBC Tees on Newport Road).


There are public toilets, including a Changing Place facility, as well as a number of shops. The toilets are open, but with a reduced capacity. They will be closed for a short time every hour so we can clean them.

The safety of visitors is of the utmost importance, and our work 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.

Lost property services are available from 9am until 5pm. Please call 01642 228500 to report lost property.

Bus shelters

The council decides the location of bus shelters and bus stops in consultation with residents and bus operators.
