Terminal 1 of the Adelaide Central bus station was opened in September 1969 on the corner of Franklin and Bowen Streets. It was built by Adelaide City Council in conjunction with Pioneer Tours and a consortium of nine near-country operators.
Over the years there were various proposals to rebuild the bus station, including relocating it to Adelaide Parklands Terminal. In 2004, Adelaide City Council released a plan to redevelop the coach station. The new station with 39 apartments and a carpark above opened in December 2007, with the SeaLink Travel Group appointed to manage the station.
Part of the former terminal has been occupied by The Joinery, a Conservation Council of South Australia community environment space.
