The Nils Ericson Terminal

The Nils Ericson Terminal is a major bus terminus in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is placed in the city centre just next to Gothenburg Central Station (Centralstationen), and across the street from the main Nordstan shopping centre. The main street and most hotels are within walking distance from the terminal.

The terminal serves the entire Västra Götaland County with bus traffic. Bus companies such as Säfflebussen, Swebus Express and Eurolines serve destinations such as Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Hamburg and most countries in Europe.

The bus terminal uses the modern system where buses arrive at gates and the passengers enter the buses directly from the air-conditioned terminal, much like in modern airports.

The terminal is named after Nils Ericson, a Swedish inventor and mechanical engineer.

The terminal was designed by the Norwegian architect, Nils Torp, and received the national Kasper Salin Prize in 1996.
