Wrexham bus station is an 8-stand indoor bus station situated on King Street in the centre of Wrexham, in north-east Wales. A new complex was opened in two halves in December 2003, on the site of the original bus station which was originally built in the late 1960s with the adjacent office buildings.
The original station had much graffiti on its aging steel bus stands, and main brick building, which housed a small Newsagents.
While the original bus station was redeveloped, use was made of the wide pavement area of King Street as temporary locations for the bus stands.
The new bus station features a number of small shops, varying from newsagents to a Fat Cat Cafe Bar.
Most services are operated by Arriva Buses Wales, which operates the longest routes using Wright Commander buses, however GHA Coaches also operate several services, due to continuing recent expansion. A number of smaller firms also operate from the bus station.
There is a £1.4 Million pound redevelopment due in 2013.
