The bus station, of eight stands numbered alphabetically, is situated on Beardsall's Row, between Arlington Way and Spa Road in the town centre.
The bus station was rebuilt by Nottinghamshire County Council at a cost of £1.5 million to replace the previous collection of bus shelters. It opened on July 30, 2007. It was built as a fully enclosed building, with CCTV coverage and improved pedestrian access to the town centre. The bus station incorporates a solar panelled tower and a stained glass window.
Prior to 2007, the bus station was first constructed as an open area laid circa 1978 to replace the previous bus stands in Chapelgate. It was a simple open plaza with a raised bed in the centre, and simple bus shelters around the edge.
Local company Kettlewells Coaches also run the weekly Doncaster Shopper and Lincoln Shopper services from the bus station.
