Euston Bus Station serves the Euston area of Camden, London, England. The station is owned and maintained by Transport for London

It is situated next to Euston station and above Euston tube station and near Euston Square. It was opened in 1979, to a design by Richard Seifert.

There are five stands at the bus station that are serviced by routes operated by Arriva London, London Central, London General, London United, Metroline and Tower Transit.

Layout and buses[edit]

There are two entrances that serve buses both entering and leaving the bus station.

One entrance diverges off Eversholt Street opposite Grafton Place. Routes that terminate such as 18, 68, 253 and 476 usually enter via this entrance and continue to their designated stands, routes 59 and 91 which continue to King's Cross also use this entrance and turn on the roundabout to exit at the same point. Strangely, route 59 towards Holborn also passes through the bus station whereas route 91 turns left directly from Euston Road onto Upper Woburn Place.

The second entrance is diverges off Euston Road, it serves as a starting point for route 18 with Bus Stop (F) closely by. Routes 10; 30; 73, 205 and 390 heading east towards King's Cross call here and exit via Grafton Place. Buses on these routes heading west do not divert via the bus station, staying on Euston Road.

With night routes N5; N20; N205 and N253 call at the station in both directions.
