Millenium Park Bus Depot - World's Largest Bus Depot

A bus station is a structure where city or intercity buses stop to pick up and drop off passengers. It is larger than a bus stop, which is usually simply a place on the roadside, where buses can stop. It may be intended as a terminal station for a number of routes, or as a transfer station where the routes continue. The largest bus station in the world is Millennium Park Bus Depot in Delhi, India

The depot is comprehensive in all respects, with parking space for around 1,000 buses, five workshop-cum-bus scanning centres, seven dormitories for Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) officers, night stay for 500 persons, eight washing pits, four underground tanks for washing buses and two CNG filling stations, among other facilities. Officials said the depot was constructed within a very short period at a cost of Rs 61 crore and can be called the greenest depot in the country.

The Millennium Park depot has overtaken the Central Bus Station, located in Tel Aviv (Israel), which is spread over 57 acres and can accommodate 800 buses.
