Concerns have been raised over the lack of facilities at Gloucester bus station.

Bus campaigners in Gloucestershire are calling on civic chiefs to restore the transport hub in Station Road to its “former glory”.

They are disappointed that the shop is close and the café is not being used.

Speaking at a meeting in Shire Hall, David Redgewell, a member of the public, asked what was being done to improve the site.

“This is causing us some concern. It’s one of the most modern in the South West and is to be applauded,” he told Gloucestershire County Council’s meeting on February 15.

“But it is concerning when we’ve not managed to get the bus station up and running again since the Covid period. The shop’s closed and there’s no market to get it reopened.

“The café is closed and the bus rail integration signage is not working. It’s a tribute to the council. We would like to see it back to its former glory.”

Gloucestershire County Council chiefs explained that the main concourse, public toilets and café areas and the structure of the main building of Gloucester Transport Hub are under the control of Gloucester City Council.

And City Council chiefs have confirmed plans are afoot to open the café and kiosk there.

A city council spokesperson said: “Both the café and kiosk are being marketed imminently. We hope to have these units filled as quickly as possible to ensure Gloucester Transport Hub offers its full range of services.”
