SDP: West Yorkshire Bus Station

Research of the former bus station on Vicar Lane in Leeds:

Things that I found really interesting were that Leeds used to have about 5 bus stations around the city! I found it quite endearing that the Vicar Lane bus station was referred to as the “Red” bus station, whereas the one which became the current Leeds City Bus Station was referred to as the “Green” bus station. This was due to livery between both stations’s owners. The bus station on Vicar Lane, or the Red Bus Station, was called the West Yorkshire Bus Station – due to the West Yorkshire buses arriving at and departing from it. These were red buses.

This discusses other stations such as Wellington St’s more than Vicar Lane’s however.
