Construction Cost Estimates for Bus Terminal in National, US

The following analysis estimates the cost to build a bus terminal using US National Average costs from 2013 RSMeans cost data. Costs are derived from a building model that assumes basic components, using union labor for a 12000 square foot building.

Scope differences and market conditions can cause costs to vary significantly. To see an estimate of the costs to build a bus terminal in a specific city or metropolitan area, go to our index of bus terminal models by state.
