With the gorgeous train station at its heart Scarborough would benefit from an integrated transport hub helping to bring the public into the centre of Scarborough whilst allowing them to easily reach the tourist options around the borough through public transport. By purchasing the old COMET building on the corner of Westwood and the A165 we open up a great opportunity for a modern central transport hub. The COMET building could be demolished and connected with the existing station infrastructure. The unused areas of the station, the COMET site and the existing EYMS depot could be brought together under a new Scarborough Transport Hub branding allowing for integrated bus, rail and park and ride services. Dedicated platforms for each bus service with link services to the train station timed appropriately. Scarborough-centric tourist buses could also run out of the same hub allowing tourists to easily and safely find different areas of the borough to explore.
