Somehow, the idea of hiding buses in dingy caverns beneath shopping centres refuses to die. Doncaster Interchange, located under Frenchgate shopping centre, is kept clean and has good facilities both for passengers and buses, but it is still a pretty hostile environment in which to catch a bus. The bizarre pedestrian access arrangements at this end do not help: for some reason, there is no gap in the railings to allow people to reach the crossing just inside the bus station from here (hence the sign attached to the brickwork, left), so they must walk towards the railway station and then almost double back through the building on the left. Obviously having to cross a busy dual carriageway to get here from the town centre proper is not enough of a barrier.
