Why use Park & Ride?
Here are some great reasons to try Park & Ride:
Park & Ride is one of the most cost-effective forms of transport, particularly compared with the car. Find out more on our fares page.
More free time
Using public transport for part of your journey frees up a little more time to do something you enjoy. Catch up on emails, chat with friends, read the paper or simply relax, let someone else do the driving, and prepare for the day ahead.
Faster end-to-end journeys
Prioritised traffic lights and dedicated bus lanes on main routes allow Park & Ride buses to get in and out of the city quickly. With fewer stopping points than local bus services, Park & Ride services are much faster than driving into the city at peak times.
Frequent and convenient
Park & Ride services take you into the heart of the city within minutes - great in wet weather or when you're carrying heavy bags. Services are very frequent with buses up to every ten minutes.
Economic growth and better air quality
Using Park & Ride helps cut congestion by keeping more cars out of the city centre. Congestion restricts business and has a severe cost to the economy. Reducing congestion means faster journey times for everyone and improved air quality. Fewer vehicles on the road also improves the ambience of the city and our quality of life.

More details can be found on the fares page.
Park & Ride runs 7 days a week including bank holidays!
With frequent buses up to every 10 minutes during peak times, and a short journey time of only 15 minutes, you won’t have to wait long to explore the city. Next time you're driving into York, why not avoid the hassle and expense of parking in the city centre and try the York Park & Ride instead?
