Bridlington’s popular Park and Ride service reopens for business on Saturday (19 March), all the way through until the end of October.
Park and Ride offers a frequent service, with buses every 15- 30 minutes from South Cliff caravan park to the harbour. Costing only £4 per vehicle (up to five passengers), Park and Ride represents excellent value for money, and buses run until 6.15 pm each day.
During the six- week school summer holidays, the service will be extended until 8pm each evening.
Later this year, the new-look bus service will also serve the hugely-anticipated East Riding Leisure Bridlington in the heart of the seafront, when it opens, as well as the harbour area.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of the council, said: “Bridlington Park and Ride is a real asset to the resort. It will doubtless become even more popular later in the year when passengers can use these regular buses to get straight to the fantastic new facility at East Riding Leisure Bridlington.
“It’s particularly pleasing that we are able to extend Park and Ride on a trial basis this summer into the early evening, which will boost the town’s economy by encouraging visitors to stay that little bit longer, and maybe enjoy a meal in the town before heading home. Here’s to a bumper year!”
There is secure parking for up to 1000 vehicles, including motor homes, and the car park, which boasts public toilets and covered waiting areas, is monitored by CCTV. The low-floor buses are all easy access, and offer an environmentally friendly and easy way into the town.
For an even more scenic route, passengers can choose to travel on the South Promenade land train, and this cost is included in the £4 Park and Ride fare. The land trains run to The Spa Bridlington.
