Today, only a small portion of the bus station building is in use. A garage used to operate in the section beneath the shelter. In the time of the Soviet Union, it was used as a bus garage until 1970, but in 1980s the shelter area was remodelled and glazed and now houses a shop. Two shops remain in the wing on the Ulitsa Kirova (Valamonkatu) side. The wing in the Ulitsa Zikalova (Kristiinankatu) side now houses a café.
