Transport Interchange, Smith Street, Rochdale
Rochdale’s new transport interchange opened on Sunday 17 November 2013. It is situated on the southern side of Smith Street where it links directly with the new Metrolink extension, completed on 31 March 2014.

The development, which stands next to Rochdale Council’s new office building and customer service centre, SD8913 : Number One, Riverside, replaces the town’s old bus station which was built in 1978. It is claimed to be Europe’s first transport interchange to have an integrated hydropower source.

The scheme is part of the wider £250m redevelopment of Rochdale town centre, which includes the construction of Number One Riverside, the new Metrolink line and a £100m new retail and leisure development. The opening of the interchange paves the way for the demolition of the old council offices, known as the black box, and the old bus station (SD8913 : Former Municipal Offices and Bus Station, Rochdale), which will make way for the proposed shopping and family leisure facility (LinkExternal link Rochdale Online)
