The central coach station is the busiest bus station in the UK and was extensively refurbished in 2005. Managed under contract by National Express.
The station was first constructed in the early 1970's. Notable improvements in the 2005 construction include an inflatable 1100 m² translucent roof structure, which was the basis of the new three floors high and column free station. The self supporting canopy is also transparent, allowing the space to be naturally lit during daylight hours.
Most coach services at Terminals 2 and 3 actually terminate and depart from the central bus station. The central bus station is open 24 hours a day and includes a covered travel centre in the middle with a ticket office for purchasing tickets on the day along with a newsagent/confectionary shop, cafe Nero, information desk, ticket machines and dedicated national Express desk. Please note while the bus station is open 24 hours the Travel centre is not 24 hours, and is open 06.00 till 22.30.

The central bus station is linked to all 4 terminals via the Heathrow help Bus. This is a free service for passengers with disabilities which operates between 06.00 till 23.00. This service can also be requested using the phone at help points or by calling direct on 020 8745 6261.
