bus station ...is a good translation too... is even better "where does the bus stop?-in a bus station"...maybe I am not so good at English ..is not my mother tongue ...
Words like "die Bushhaltestelle" are great to break apart into root words in order to determine their composite meaning. Looking up each piece of the word in dict.cc: "Bus" = bus, "-halte" = stops, "stelle" = spot/point/location.
Therefore, "die Bushaltestelle" means "the bus-stops location." Or, in English, "the bus stop."
This use of the word "stop" doesn't describe the bus traveling all the way back to the bus station and stopping for the evening, but rather making a stop along its route.
