A bus station is a structure where city or intercity buses stop to pick up and drop off passengers. It is larger than a bus stop, which is usually simply a place on the sidewalk, where buses can stop. It may be intended as a terminal station for a number of routes, or as a transfer station where the routes continue.

The largest bus station in the world is The Central Bus Stationmarker in Tel Avivmarker , Israelmarker. The station, which was opened in 1993 has a built area of 230,000 m² and a total area of 44 dunams (44,000 m²). However, this station was considered for a long time as a failure, mainly due to its location in the middle of a residential neighborhood.

Bus station platforms may be assigned to fixed bus lines, or variable in combination with a dynamic passenger information system [34187] . The latter requires fewer platforms, but does not supply the passenger the comfort of knowing the platform well in advance and waiting there.
