The international bus station is being built in Samarkand, manager of the SXF Camping LLC Shakhrukh Rafiyev said.

The bus station is designed to receive more than 100 buses, 200 minibuses and 300 cars at the same time, according to 

A three-story building of the bus station includes a waiting room, a cash desk, catering, medical center and entertainment centers, and other commercial and consumer services. Hotels, parking spaces for buses, minibuses and cars, non-linear fixed-route taxi zones, vehicle maintenance rooms are also being built.

"The construction work started last year is planned to be completed this year. The new bus station will connect Samarkand with all regions of Uzbekistan. It is also planned to launch bus routes to Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and other countries," Rafiyev said.

The construction of this facility will regulate the movement of vehicles in Samarkand, prevent traffic jams, ensuring the movement of vehicles in the districts of Samarkand region and intercity routes to the bus station without entering the city.
