Bus depots are specialised facilities designed to store, maintain and service buses. They typically feature large parking areas for buses, as well as maintenance and repair bays, fuelling or charging stations, and administrative offices. Bus depots are critical to the operation of bus fleets, as they provide a centralised location for storing and maintaining buses, as well as a base of operations for bus drivers and other personnel. Many bus depots also serve as hubs for bus routes, where buses start and end their daily runs, and where drivers can take breaks or switch buses.
