Park and Ride

Bus Station

Info: Park and Ride - One bus shelter available, though because around 4 megabuses pass through here at about the same time, it's usually difficult to get a seat. Bus Station - Toilets, newsagents on site.

Glasgow

Where: Buchanan Street Bus Station - usually stance 52. Info: Plenty of indoor seating. Don't be put off if it looks like the bus is going to a totally wrong city - many journeys involve changing at Perth. There are pay toilets at the bus station, but they are currently closed and have been replaced with portaloos.

Edinburgh

Where: St Andrews Square bus station. Close to the Waverly end of Princes Street.

Info: Major indoor bus station, so plenty of seating and loos and such. There is another drop off point in Edinburgh on Queensferry Road.

Manchester

Where: Outside Chorlton Street Coach Station

Map: [1]

Info: The bus stops at the "free bus" stop outside the station, not in the National Express station itself. If you have time before your bus arrives, there are paid (20p) toilets, hot & cold drink and food vending machines, and a shop which is half "Upper Crust" and half paper shop. Should be enough to pass the time.

Cardiff

Where: Kingsway y Fford Brenin.

Info: It does not stop at Cardiff Central Bus Station. The stop is on a small road between Boulevard de Nantes and Greyfriars (opposite the Hilton Hotel). Journey time to London is about 3 hours 15 minutes and costs about £5-7.

Aberdeen

Where: Aberdeen bus station

Info: The bus station is attached to the Union Square shopping centre, so there are plenty coffee shops, toilet facilities and seating available. Union Square is in turn attached to Aberdeen railway station and is a short walk from the NorthLink ferry terminal.
