Following the inauguration of the new Mall adjoining the pedestrian zone in Downtown Wuppertal toward the principal train station Döppersberg, the adjoining bus terminal has now started operations. It is designed for 35 bus lines to converge at the newly structured transfer point of the ÖPNV. The principal developers, the WSW, estimate up to 65,000 passengers will use the bus terminal daily. It is estimated that approximately one third of them will transfer to other bus lines, the suspension monorail or the German railroad.
The bus terminal represents the final component of the urban redesign and the structural design of the overall railroad station area. The entire area has been enriched by an attractive urban addition in the city center, a concept developed and realized by JSWD Architekten.
