Pretty poorI was excited when this set was revealed, and that Lego was realeasing some more normal/generic city sets. Despite some early criticism, I decided to purchase the set.
The bus is disappointing and even deceiving. The bus seems slightly oversized and dwarfs buildings in a city. The roof doesn't come of without dismantling the top, making access deceptively difficult. Two bikes cannot fit easily on the bike rack, as suggested on the box. It's a shame Lego has not included any options for the 78 left had driving countries, but this is understandable, as Lego sells fewer sets in these countries. Detail on the exterior and interior of the bus is minimal.
The structures and minifigures are better and help to rescue some of the oversights of the bus. The structures are small but do the job-Considering the name is 'bus station it is clearly misleading. The minifigure selection is good in comparison, six is quite a lot for this small set. Four of the torsos are recycled, this doesn't matter too much as they, and the hairpieces, are relatively rare. The variation of generation and gender, and the usability in many situations is notably good. The inclusion of two bikes and a dog is nice, but not that special. However, the wheelchair is, and has been incorporated with the bus.
Regarding the price, it is clearly overpriced for what is included. Overall, this is bit of a disappointing set, although not completely devoid of positives.

The Wheels on the Bus....As with one of the previous reviewers, I was quite excited when I saw this set due to be released. I am hopefully going to be laying out a nice townscape this year once a shed is built for it, and some public transport (other than the myriad train sets I now possess!) would be a nice touch.
As far as the external side of things goes, I think the bus looks in keeping with the City range. Nice choice of colour and I like the door/window frame style. I did however have 5 middle roof pieces, the extra one taking the place of one of the end pieces. Thankfully a quick visit to the missing pieces section of the website has resolved that, with the missing piece in the post as I type.
Internally, I think the bus is a little lacking, as mentioned in another review, but then the City range vehicles are often fairly basic internally, as are the trains. I was a little dismayed when I realised that the bus did not have a retractable wheelchair ramp, as the buses do here in England (I'm guessing elsewhere in the world as well), as the main box picture gave me that impression.
The Bus Station is a little substandard relative to its title, but I think the newsstand is quite nicely done.
Minifigure count was quite pleasing, and with a wheelchair to boot!
Overall, I feel a little let down with the bus internals and the simplicity of the 'station', but this is more really to do with the price point. If this had been around three quarters of the price, I'd have been happy to go four stars, if only so I could pick up a couple extras later in its lifespan even cheaper and combine them to build a station worthy of the name!
ps. Ignore my build time, I often build while watching TV and I cannot for the life of me remember how long I actually spent on this set!

OkNot a bad set. Not too much to it so don't really find it great value for money even though I picked it up on sale.
Great addition to our Lego city though so still recommend it if you pick it up cheap.

Great set!I was really happy to acquire this set, because it just felt necessary to have a bus in my Lego City. I also really liked the fact of the inclusion of the newsstand and a nice bus station and of course, the bus. In a nutshell:
-Interior design as well as exterior design of bus is very enticing to play with.
-Newsstand and bus station are good inclusions as extra stuff to add to your city or just to play with.
-Love the inclusion of doors for people in wheelchairs and baby carriage.
-Lots of minifigures!
-Price to part ratio is a little high.
- In order to access the interior of the bus, you have to take off the pieces that make up the roof of the bus. This is not easy and sometimes results in me taking off too many pieces.
However, don't let the cons take away from this set. It's still awesome to own and I would recommend it to anybody. It's always nice to see Lego go for some "normal life" sets. The price might be a little high, but I think all in all, it's worth it. Great job Lego, another satisfied customer!
