This project series documents the Plano Urbanístico e Central de Camionagem in Guimarães, Portugal. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the numbe 12/80. The office assigned the date 1982 to this project.

The project was part of an urban plan for Guimarães designed by Fernando Távora. Siza's project consisted of a study for a bus station that was linked to the EN 206 road. The program included parking for short and long term use, a system for the arrival and departure of buses, and a covered pathway. The program also included a building with spaces for the public and for administrative activities, as well as a circuit for the maintenance of the buses without creating traffic.

Documenting this project are studies and site plans. Textual materials include project documentation and correspondence. Photographs and negatives document the project site.
