Park and Ride

Park and Ride

Getting into York by car isn't always easy. People have tried many things over the years to avoid the traffic and expensive parking, but it really doesn't have to be that complicated. With six cleverly located Park & Ride sites surrounding the city centre, getting into York has never been easier.

Wherever you're coming from, there's a Park & Ride to suit you.

York Park & Ride is:


With the opening of the brand new Poppleton Bar site, there are over 5000 car parking spaces across 6 sites covering every side of York – so wherever you're coming from you'll find one to suit you.


Park & Ride buses usually take 15 minutes or less to get into York, and they're every 10 minutes or better most of the day.

Easy to use

It's really simple. Just drive up, park for free and buy your ticket from the driver.

Great value

It's just £2.80 for an adult return - and if you're with the family, up to 2 kids under 16 years old go free with every full-fare paying adult.

So next time you're driving to York, avoid the hassle and expense of parking in the city centre and try the Park & Ride instead.
