Discover where the Park & Ride could take you

York is steeped in over 2,000 years of history and culture. The city has more attractions per square mile than anywhere else in the UK making it a great place for a day out. Head to the Shambles for shopping, enjoy a production at one of York’s many theatres or discover delicious food & drink at local restaurants – there’s plenty to choose.

Parking is free at each of the 6 easy-to-reach sites around York, so you avoid city centre parking charges too! Catch a zero-emission electric bus and let someone else do the driving. With prioritised traffic lights and dedicated bus lanes, York Park & Ride can get you in and out of the city quickly and runs as frequently as every 10 minutes so you can cram in more treats during your visit.
