A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Tsukuba Bus Terminal Building Closed!

Tsukuba Bus Terminal Building Closed!
– The landmark building of Tsukuba that watched the city grow ends its history

The Tsukuba Center Bus Terminal will be barrier-free and will become a more user-friendly bus terminal in March of 2010. The current bus terminal building ended its operation, and will be demolished soon. All the businesses in that building have relocated.

■ Kanto Railway Co. (Kanto Tetsudo) will set up a temporary ticket office in the current bus terminal site during the construction, so users can still purchase tickets at the bus terminal. Kanto Tetsudo said that the loading zones will change as the construction of the site moves on. Please allow enough time for “wandering around” the bus terminal once the construction begins.

■ Academic Newtown Community Cable Service (ACCS), an internet service provider and Tsukuba’s only cable TV station has moved to a new location. Its office is now in the Tsukuba Toshi Saisei Kikou Building which is located between Ooshimizu Park and Tsukuba Chuo Police Station. ACCS has also set up an information counter on the second floor of K’s Denki near LaLa Garden, which is probably more customer-friendly than its old location since we don’t have to worry about parking.

I also want to take this opportunity to encourage ACCS users/viewers to send their “wish lists” to ACCS. ACCS conducts a survey every once in a while to check which programs are popular or what kind of programs are in demand.
