The building provides excellent facilities, with full disabled access across the building, a huge improvement to the bus shelters available across the street before the building opened.
The building includes some sustainable building processes including solar skylights, which create a light and spacious feel throughout the building. A solar thermal heating system which provides hot water all year round for heating the building and also the toilet facilities. There is also a covered bike shelter for cyclists to park and ride, covered by CCTV.
Hopefully the facility will encourage more people to make use of buses to commute and for leisure purposes, the centre also provides information, and for a first time bus user the information screens detailing the destination of each bus and where it will be located (ie stand number) and its current status (ie on time). I was quite shocked on my first visit to see a steady stream of human traffic using the new centre, a very positive first look!
