Terrible terrible service. Just waited til 1.30 for the 1.15 number 61 to leave! No reason given probably because they don't care whether the passengers are late or not!!! Absolutely shocking!

As a visitor to Preston on Tuesday, I made a special effort to find the bus station. Not over easy when we got lost in the one way street of the Guildhall. But worth it. I knew the station in the mid ...1980s. It has lost none of its charm. So good to see money being spent. Please do keep all the signs and the seats in the cafe! What an era! Us in far away Hexham have lost our charming 1932 market town bus station. See More

An inspector at the station refused to answer questions so I took a photo of him to make a complaint. He grabbed my phone hurting my hand. Just typical service.

So, "uncompromisingly monstrous" is how the leader of Preston council who primed its demolition described Preston Bus Station. PBS is brutalist and uncompromising but, I think, utterly beautiful too -... architecturally stunning, accomplished and truly unique and the lines against the horizon - a thing to behold. I recently moved just down the road so have seen it in the flesh, like a smack in the face but also pleasing to the eye. To destroy this historic, challenging and unique piece of architecture but moreover, well used and loved (if not by all!) depot as it stands would be "uncompromisingly monstrous". See More

We should keep this imposing building as its a fantastic example of a kind of architecture that is gone, for the best? May be, but it's big, strong, in your face and weathers all, it's Prestonian thro...ugh and through KEEP IT, sell it to some company who can think out of the box and make it pay, flats, retail, Lesiure I don't care, just keep it See More

Is it not possible for young and creative architects to integrate this fabulous historic and prominent local feature into their new plans? I'm all for something new and a revamp for the area but I can...not believe that such thoughts have entered heads to demolish history. It's Preston's "Great Wall". See More

It is in a good spot for everyone it closes to the town centre and handy for the old people to get to they should not nock it down they should spend money by doing it up which would be much better

I'm not from Preston, and was walking through the City centre, I turned a corner and was almost knocked off my feet at the first sight of this stunning building. Truly unique in Britain.

It may not be beautiful in many people's eyes but it is a wonderful example of its time not only in Preston but in the whole country and should be preserved.

The most iconic structure in Preston. And a part of history. The largest bus station, dock basin and civilian cemetary in Europe.

PERMANENTLY CLOSED: Today sees the closure of the subway between Grade II Listed Preston Bus Station and Preston Guild Hall which also led to the taxi rank. The other two subways that lead out of the bus station are also to be sealed up.

Do you agree with the decision or would you have handled the subways differently, also by what year do you think they will reopen as part of Preston's "lost history" ?

The image is from a walkway in Stevenage which features a frieze of past & present sports personalities from the town and shows how similar spaces can be reinvigorated.

Major restoration work on Preston's crumbling grade-II listed Bus Station get into full swing from Monday (7 November). Passengers who use buses on Stand
