Manchester Piccadilly bus station
Manchester Piccadilly Gardens Bus Station, often abbreviated to Piccadilly or Piccadilly Gardens is one of two main bus stations in Manchester's city centre. It is located between Piccadilly Gardens and the Piccadilly Plaza. Buses for south Manchester usually begin/end their route here. There are often traffic jams around here as cars, buses and trams have to compete for roadspace. Technically it is not a bus station, just a series of bus stops and bus stands. Nearby there is a Manchester Metrolink station named Piccadilly Gardens.
