Why use it?

Avoid the stress of city centre parking with 650 spaces available on the park and ride site. Buses travel between the site and the city centre stopping at George Street, China Street and the bus station, just short walks from the Hospital, Railway Station and the City Centre respectively.

The site doesn’t just cater for park and ride, it’s also the perfect place to meet up for car sharing with being located right next to the M6 with easy access onto the motorway whether you're travelling north or south. With the site currently offering free parking and covered by CCTV cameras, it’s a great place to leave your car and share a ride with someone else.

With the River Lune just a short distance away from the park and ride, it's an ideal location to take advantage of the free parking and enjoy walking and cycling along the river.
