I've heard the bus station at Meadowhall has luggage lockers which are £1 or £2 depending on size. Can anyone confirm this and give an estimate as to the size of the lockers? I want to know if I'll be able to fit my suitcase in one and if I'd need the small or large. Also is it like swimming pool lockers where you get the money back and if not is it a set charge or it is according to the length of time you use them for? I'd only need it for about an hour at the most probably less.

    There were lockers there at the Meadowhall Interchange last time I was through there. They are in the building itself, as you go in to Meadowhall (or at least the ones I've seen were) and are in the enquiry hall.
    They look reasonably sized, IIRC stacked two high.

    It's called the Passenger Interchange because the same facility serves trains, buses and trams. HTH.

    But it's a couple of years since I have been through the interchange.

    Just in case anyone finds this thread searching for the same thing they did have lockers. Coming from the trains/trams they are straight in front of you if you walk down the corridor from the platforms. Coming from the coaches/interchange entrance you have to go upstairs and round. If you were coming from inside Meadowhall you'd follow the train signs until you saw them on your left.

    They were £1 for small and £2 for large, only accepting £1 coins. The small looked like they'd fit a small suitcase, I used a large which fit my average-large suitcase and a small bag with a bit of room left over for a few more bags if I'd needed it. The money is non-refundable and you can use it for as long as you want up to the end of the day (though it obviously won't relock without putting more money in so you couldn't bring your shopping back to put in it then go off again).

    They also had lockers in Meadowhall itself near the interchange which are the ones customer services will tell you about if you ask, but these were too small for me. I did notice they asked for tokens instead of coins though so you may have to go to customer services to hire one.

    This information is very useful, but can anyone tell me if it's possible to leave a bag overnight in a locker? Thanks.
