Other facilities within the bus stand include proper waiting rooms, refreshment rooms, restaurants, travel offices, ticket booking areas, hypermarkets and a parking lot in the basement. Surely, the bus stand will stick out to give commuters a better, more seamless and convenient travel experience. With the help of the facilities, the bus stand will be nothing short of a state of the art airport!

Whom will it benefit?

The new bus stand will benefit pretty much anyone who uses the service to get by in the city or need to travel out of the city on a regular basis. With the help of multiple travel operators making use of the bus stand, it will become a massive transport hub connecting various areas in and around the city.
