It made an impression on me the first time I encountered it back in 1975. Looking at it now, it seems strange. It's too big, too far from the railway station to be a useful transport interchange, and access to the shops is poor, if not downright dangerous. But it looks great. OK, so the striking part is actually the car park, but the scale of the place is overwhelming. Hooray for the people who lobbied to get PBS listed, it's the sort of thing that towns and cities need to retain. It is distinctive architecture at its best; and almost takes your mind off the tedious Fishergate Bollard saga.
Wheelchair accessible, food and drink sold in multiple small shops inside the bus station and Vending machines, friendly workers are there to be asked for all sorts of support. Currently down to 3 stars due to the heavy and disruptive restoration work being done on the bus station. Half of it is kept inaccessible by the public via metal fences and blue sheets covering these fences while the other half is open for visitors to see but not go near. This undergoing work has altered the areas to where your usual bus Would be, the timing of a few busses and also the entrances and exits look unappealing and slightly dangerous depending on the weather. Overall, however, Preston's amazing community is still very much a part of the bus station even through all this unsettle with undergoing construction and countless bus issues so a "it's okay" 3 stars seems very reasonable at this current moment in time.

I dont use this operator very often but their exact fare system needs to be dropped in favour of simpler fare structure, ordered a day ticket which had to be exactly £3:75 which only creates more fumbling and hassle. Did receive good service though and got me to the Hospital on time.
Green Triangle buses come and go from here. So does Preston Bus and Diamond. They have beddybyes time here... It's a flipping bus depot, what else!
