Role in series
After SpongeBob fails to get on the bus leading to Bikini Bottom numerous times, he decides to go inside of the bus station to get some help. However, SpongeBob has to wait a long time before getting to the window to get help. The manager is the only one seen working there and SpongeBob can only speak to him by speaking with the Rock Bottom accent. Unfortunately for SpongeBob, the bus has already left and the manager closes down the Bus Station.
An upset SpongeBob tries to get the manager to get another bus to come, but leaves as soon the lights turn off.
There is a vending machine inside the bus station. However, it has only appeared in the video game The Yellow Avenger.
