Bus station and public transport
The Coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented situation in the UK and is having an enormous impact on every aspect of our lives, including public transport.
We will provide any up to date information we have regarding public transport on this page.
Derby Bus Station
The bus station is fully operational for both local bus services and national coach services.
A number of restrictions are in place to ensure the safety of all users, and passengers are asked to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times.
The bus station will be open daily, Monday to Saturday, from 6am until 11.45pm and from 8am to 11.30pm on Sundays.
The toilets and convenience store are open. The Information Office is also open but is operated in accordance with the Government guidance on non-essential retail and may be required to close at short notice.
If the Information Office is required to close due to a change in Government guidance, telephone support and advice is available to travellers during normal operational hours – call 01332 711553 or 711554.
There are six mobile hand sanitisation stations located across the concourse, to allow passengers to maintain good hand hygiene before travelling.
