Help cut Christmas congestion on the Park & Ride

The countdown to Christmas is well underway and the city centre is getting more crowded with shoppers and cars by the day.

This festive season Cheshire West and Chester Council is encouraging visitors to the city centre to give the Park & Ride a try.

The service cuts traffic queues by sailing into the city in dedicated bus lanes and passengers can hop off at a variety of cross-city stops.

Every Thursday evening from 16 November the last bus back to the four Park & Ride sites will be just after 9pm, rather than 7pm.

Helping visitors to take advantage of late night Christmas shopping in the city and hassle-free Christmas preparations.
And, for the whole of the last shopping week before Christmas, from Monday 18 December until Friday 22 December, the last bus will also be approximately 9pm.

Exact timings for each route are on the Council's website.

If you're thinking of going to the Christmas Lights Switch On event on 16 November, please consider using the Park & Ride.

You won't have to worry about trying to find a car parking space or getting caught in a queue and the buses run every 12 minutes, so you won't be left hanging around.

Every Park & Ride bus has USB charging, free wifi and comfy premium seating.

The buses are frequent and have the very latest enviro-clear engines — so you'll be saving the planet too.

It's just £2 for a return ticket and you can hop on and off all day.

If children need to travel too, when the schools break up, two children (under 16) travel free with an adult.

More information, timetables and routes are available on the Council's website HERE
