Vauxhall bus station is a bus station in Vauxhall and is in the London Borough of Lambeth, London. It is operated by London Buses and owned and maintained by Transport for London and is the second busiest in London.[1]

The bus station, which is adjacent to the Vauxhall railway and tube stations, is situated on Bondway between Wandsworth Road, Kennington Road and Parry Street.


In 2004, bus stops were moved from outlying roads (South Lambeth Road, Wandsworth Road, Vauxhall Bridge) to a central point at the Vauxhall Cross road junction to create an improved transport interchange.[2]

The bus station was designed by Arup Associates.[3] It incorporates two cantilevered arms that contain 167 solar panels, which provide a third of the bus station's electricity.

The nine stands are served by Transport for London contracted operators Abellio London, Arriva London, London Central and London General.


Directly south next to the bus station is Vauxhall station for London Underground Victoria line and National Rail South West Trains.

Under threat of demolition[edit]

In 2013, Lambeth Council and Transport for London announced plans to demolish the bus station to build a new High Street, as part of Vauxhall's regeneration plans.[4] The Vauxhall Society is campaigning against the demolition and has set up a petition.[5]
