Wigan bus station is a bus station located in the town of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, England. It is run by Transport for Greater Manchester.

Services[edit]

The majority of services that serve Wigan Bus Station are run by Stagecoach in Wigan, following their takeover of First Greater Manchester's Wigan depot in December 2012.[1] Other operators that serve the bus station include Arriva North West, Charlton Minicoaches, Preston Bus, South Lancs Travel, Wigan Buses and another Stagecoach Group company, Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire.

There are frequent buses running to Bolton, Chorley, Ormskirk, St Helens and Skelmersdale plus several parts of the Wigan area, such as Ashton-in-Makerfield, Hindley, Shevington, Leigh, Pemberton, Golborne and Standish. Buses also run to Manchester, Preston, Southport, Trafford Centre and Warrington

Although there are several Nightbus services, which operate to areas around the town and to Leigh, these services do not serve the bus station and depart from outside Wigan North Western railway station instead.[2]
