London's growth, combined with the more than doubling in rail demand at Euston as a result of HS2 will lead to significant increases in the demand for bus services in and around the area. 

The HS2 Hybrid Bill proposed two bus facilities to help cater for this increase in demand. These facilities comprise a larger and higher quality bus facility station towards the south of the redeveloped rail station and an enhanced bus stop; and new bus stand at the north end of the station along Eversholt Street. The northern facility will allow for easier access to bus services for people at the north end of the station. 

TfL is working with Camden Council and HS2 Limited to progress these plans and will work with the local community to find the best solution.
