Stockport bus station in Stockport, Greater Manchester, is a bus terminus for approximately sixty-five bus services. It opened on 2 March 1981 on the site of a former car park. Before the bus station opened, most services terminated at Mersey Square.
In 2014, plans to demolish the bus station and build a new a £42 million transport interchange on the existing site with a connection to the adjacent train station were announced, but these plans were never carried out. In June 2018, plans were announced for a brand-new bus station that would be constructed on the same site underneath a 2-acre park. Other improved transport links will also be built, including a bridge to the railway station.
The majority of services are operated by Stagecoach Manchester with Arriva North West (who also run the town's Metroshuttle service), First Greater Manchester, High Peak, M Travel, Manchester Community Transport and National Express also using the station.
There are frequent buses running to Manchester, Altrincham, Ashton-under-Lyne, Hyde, Levenshulme, Longsight, Manchester Airport and Wythenshawe plus several parts of the Stockport area including Bramhall, Bredbury, Brinnington, Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme, Edgeley, Hazel Grove, Marple, Offerton, Reddish, Romiley and Stepping Hill Hospital.
