Haymarket bus station is one of two bus stations serving the city centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, North East England.

Originally opened in 1930, refurbished in the early 1970s and rebuilt in 1997,[1] it is located in the Haymarket area of the city centre, near to Newcastle University and adjacent to the more modern Eldon Square bus station and Haymarket Metro station. It is accessible from Northumberland Street either directly from the northern end or through Marks and Spencer. A travel shop for Arriva Northumbria is based within the bus station.

The station consists of 15 bus stands lettered L - Y (A-K being located in the adjacent Eldon Square bus station).

A design fault in the glass roof caused panels to flex and dislodge from the frame in hot weather. A safety net was erected below the entire roof in July 2006 after a panel fell from the roof and injured a pedestrian.[2] Since then the bus station has been redesigned with the overhead glass panelling being replaced with a more solid roof structure.

Quaylink

Stand Y is the northern terminus for the Q2 QuayLink service which is operated by a fleet of distinctive yellow-liveried buses running every 10 minutes to Newcastle Quayside. The other QuayLink service, the Q1, runs from Newcastle railway station to Gateshead Interchange via The Sage Gateshead. An interchange for the both services is Grey Street. The majority of intermediate bus stops feature real time information.

There is an Arriva Travel Centre in the bus station, which is open 9.00am-5.00pm Mon-Fri and 9.00am-1.00pm Sat. For other timetables there is a Nexus travel centre in the Haymarket Metro.
