The whole modular building consists of 6 no. Modules, totalling 132m2.
All the Park & Ride facilities, including the buses and routes, each have a distinct colour, to provide passengers with an easy, visual of destination routes. Temple Greens’ feature colour is a vibrant Orange, whilst Elland Road boasts bright Green.
