Park & Ride FREE of charge

Peterborough City Council will once again be offering a free park and ride service from November to help ease traffic congestion in the run up to what is the busiest time of the year on the city's roads.

The service will allow people to leave their car at specific sites and travel into town on the bus. It will operate on Saturdays from 1 November to 27 December 2008.

Stagecoach will be running buses every 12 minutes from the Diligenta car park at Lynch Wood to Queensgate on Saturdays. The first bus leaves Lynch Wood at 8.05 am and the last bus from Queensgate will be at 6.12 pm.

There will also be a service to Queensgate on Saturdays from outside Perkins car park on Oxney Road, operated by Stagecoach. The first bus from Perkins will be at 8.09 am, with the last bus leaving Queensgate at 6.14 pm. This service will also drop off and pick up passengers at Midgate to make it easy to get to the city market and Cathedral Square. Buses will operate every 8-12 minutes and this will include Stagecoach Citi 7 service. Stagecoach Citi 7 can also be used by park and ride passengers between the Perkins site and the city centre.

To further ease city centre congestion, a Sunday park and ride service will begin on 30 November and operate until Sunday 21 December 2008.

Buses will run every 12 minutes and from the same sites as the Saturday service. This service will be operated by Veolia Transport. At Lynchwood, the first bus will leave at 10.05 am and the last bus from Queensgate will be 5 pm. The first bus at Oxney Road will set off at 10 am and the last bus will return at 5.01 pm.

All the services will feature low-floor vehicles allowing easy access for wheelchairs and buggies. Security will also be provided at both car parks.

For further information about this year's park and ride, please telephone see the contact details on the right.
