York park and ride

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

York park and ride is a park & ride system operated by City of York Council in the English city of York. It is the largest in the United Kingdom with 4,970 car spaces.[1]


The first park & ride site was established on Tadcaster Road in 1990. Since then it has expanded and today six routes operate.[2] It has been operated by First York under contract to the City of York Council since the late 1990s.[3] In June 2016, the contract was put up for tender.[4][5] However none of the bids met the council's expectations, resulting in First York being granted a 12-month extension until January 2018 with a fresh tender process to commence.[6] First York subsequently successfully bid to retain the contract until February 2025.[7][8][9]


The services run very frequently, with buses every 10 minutes. There are six coloured routes, forming part of the standard First York services.[10] The service operates with a flat fare between all park and ride car parks and the city centre, and offering regular tickets and day tickets, which are valid for use on all First York services.


Services are operated by a combination of 2008 Wright Eclipse Volvo B7RLEs, 2009 Mercedes-Benz Citaro O530G articulated buses and 2014/15 electric Optare Versas.[11][12][13] The previous Wright Eclipse Fusion bodied Volvo B7LAs have left the fleet.

Buses previously operated in a modified version of First York's white, blue and pink livery before a silver livery was adopted.


This list shows the numbers of the six routes and the six park and ride sites served by the routes. The routes are also part of First York's colour-coded "Overground" network of routes.
