On the south side at Garden Street there are five bays where national buses operated by National Express depart from to major cities as London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol as well as Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport. Also from Garden Street, there is a regular half-hourly service, served by First Cymru's route 100 'Shuttle' bus from Swansea bus station to Bridgend Designer Outlet and Cardiff Central Station or Cardiff Bay. Three baysdubious are located on Wellington Street on the south side for use by charter buses.

Future plans

With the station now being over twenty years old, the station is now in poor condition. Plans are afoot to re-develop the station into a more modern bus interchange facility. [cite web
