The bus station is situated in Middlesbrough Town Centre off Newport Road. It was opened in 1982 by the actress Pat Phoenix once of Coronation Street, and stands partly on the site of the previous bus station which belonged to the United bus company.

There are 25 stands at the bus station and the main operators there are Arriva North East and Stagecoach North East. Buses go from the bus stations around the Teesside area and as far afield as Scarborough, Darlington and Newcastle upon Tyne.
