Middlesbrough bus station

Middlesbrough bus station is open 7 days a week, from 5am until 10pm.

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

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


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 stand Z (outside BBC Tees on Newport Road) at all times of the day.


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.
