Two satellite bus stations, known as hubs, could be built in Cardiff city centre because the much-delayed new Central bus station will not be able to accommodate all local bus services.

Cardiff Council closed the previous bus station, immediately adjacent to Cardiff Central railway station, in 2015 to make way for property development. Bus services were temporarily displaced to various stops in the city centre until the new bus station opened, expected in 2017. After many delays, the bus station is now largely built but cannot open until 2023, when the over-site development is completed.
