A parking capacity for 96 buses and ample maneuverability presented by the two strategically located buildings gives this bus station a compact yet spacious look.

Glass-coated lacquer festoons the office building enhancing the view of the landscape while ushering in more sunlight. The maintenance shop faces away from its neighboring buildings to minimise sound pollution.
