Where to catch the Park & Ride

Whatever you're planning to do in the city, using the Park & Ride means a stress-free visit without the hassle of traffic and parking in the city centre. 

Heading to Bath Christmas Market this year? We've increased the frequency of our Park & Ride services to every few minutes at the weekends from Odd Down (service 41) & Lansdown (service 31) and every 10 mins from Newbridge (service 21).

Three routes operate into the city: 

Service 21 – Newbridge (Postcode BA1 3NB)

Service 31 - Lansdown (Postcode BA1 9BJ)

Service 41 – Odd Down (Postcode BA2 8PA)

Park & Ride Timetables  

Service 21, 31 & 41 from 28 August 2022


Using the Park & Ride has never been easier. Just park for free and buy your tickets on the First Bus app - select your area as Bath and then search Bath Park & Ride.
