Stockport bus station in Stockport, Greater Manchester, is a bus terminus for approximately sixty-five bus services in the Greater Manchester area. It opened on 2 March 1981, having formerly been a car park.
Before the bus station opened, most bus services terminated at Mersey Square. It is just off the A6, beneath Stockport Viaduct and a few hundred metres from Stockport railway station. The station has 24 stands with another two stops on Wellington Road and Mersey Square.
In 2014, plans to demolish the bus station and build a new a £42 million transport interchange on the existing site with a connection to the adjacent train station were announced. As at August 2016, nothing has come of this.

The majority of services are operated by Stagecoach Manchester with Arriva North West (who also run the town's Metroshuttle service), First Greater Manchester, High Peak, M Travel, Manchester Community Transport and National Express also using the station.
