Bus terminals

Categories / City Services/Transportation/Municipal Transportation

BUS TERMINALS are bus stations for intercity and international bus passenger transit. The first bus terminal (No 1) was opened in 1955 at 37 Sadovaya Street in the building of the former Sennoy Market guardhouse (architect V.I. Beretti, 1818-20; since 1886 the house accommodated a "foodstuff testing station", and from the early 20th century, a City Food Safety Laboratory). The terminal provided transit to 24 routes in Leningrad Region (Volosovo, Ropsha, Kingisepp, Ivangorod, etc.) and to the Baltics (Tallinn, Tartu); it also had an in-house intercity telephone station. Terminal No.2 for long distance routes was opened in 1963 at 36-40 Obvodny Canal Embankment (presently 36 Obvodny Canal Embankment; 1961-62, architects V.V. Bragin and others), providing bus service to Pskov, Novgorod, and Vologda regions, Karelia and the Baltics (all in all some 100 routes). In 1987 Bus Depot No.1 was transferred to Varshavsky Railway Station (servicing 180 destinations). Bus terminals at 18 Obvodny canal, Dnepropetrovskaya Street and 10 Shkapina Street (Eurolines) service international destinations. There are several other bus terminals in St. Petersburg (120 Obvodny Canal Embankment; 10-а Sedova Street and others) and in all towns of Leningrad Region.
