Methane-fuelled bus in the Bus Station

Lincoln City Bus Station is a bus station in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England. It is situated in the city centre, just off Melville Street, and very close to the railway station.[1]

The chief operator is Stagecoach, which runs county-wide services, particularly to Skegness, Boston, Grantham, Scunthorpe and Grimsby. Other Interconnect and CallConnect services are run by InterConnect.[2] National Express Coaches also operate from Lincoln to London (Victoria) and to Westward Ho! in Devon. There is a weekly service from Bourne operated by Kimes.[3]

In 2011 Stagecoach introduced what was thought to be the first buses powered by Methane, operating local routes from the Lincoln Bus Station.[4]

In 2012 planning permission was granted to Lincolnshire Co-operative Society to redevelop the bus station site as part of a development to be known as Lindongate. A new bus station will be included in the development, closer to the railway station.[5][6]
