North Greenwich Bus Station serves the area of North Greenwich in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Greater London, England. The station is owned and maintained by Transport for London.

The bus station is next to the North Greenwich station and situated approximately 100 metres away from London's O2 arena.

North Greenwich bus station was completed at around the same time as the tube station in 1999. This was when the Jubilee Line extension towards Stratford was completed. The Millennium Dome was the main attraction at the time. The bus and tube stations are quite close to the Blackwall Tunnel across the River Thames.

The bus station is accessible via escalator from the tube station. The design, by Foster and partners, incorporates a sweeping aerofoil shaped roof canopy. There is extensive use of glass.[1] There are five stands within the bus station.
