Can you recall waiting in the draughty gloom of the North Bus Station waiting for your fare home? Racing trough the subway beneath Trafford Way just before your brown and cream double decker pulled away from the stop?
Or maybe you took a more leisurely approach with a pint in the Trades and Labour Club, a cuppa in the Northern Coach Bar or simply perusing in the long narrow newsagent’s shop?
If that brings back the memories, then you’ll have been on the buses in Doncaster during the 70s and 80s.
As well as the North Bus Station, now totally demolished and replaced by the Transport Interchange and extended Frenchgate Centre, if your destination was on the other side of town, then you’d head to the South Bus Station.
No-one was ever quite sure of the names - North or Northern? South or Southern? But both were dark, gloomy affairs - certainly not the kind of place you’d like to hang around at the wrong time of day.
Both boasted traditional ‘greasy spoon’ caffs while the Southern also had a taxi rank in the far corner for passengers wanting to continue their journeys.
For more exotic travel, the South station, which still remains pretty much intact as the Civic Quarter car park, it was from here that Doncaster’s National Express buses set off on their travels.
So sit back and enjoy some pictures from the past of Doncaster’s bygone bus stations.
