Discover all the exciting reasons to ‘Make the switch’ to York’s Park & Ride!

Better for the environment

In 2020, we introduced 21 fully electric, zero emission buses to the Park & Ride, to offer a greener, more environmentally friendly travel option for York! Did you know that using one double decker bus could mean there up to 65 fewer cars on the road?


York’s six Park & Rides sites are located on all sides of the city so, wherever you’re travelling from, there’s one to suit you. Between them they offer 5,000 FREE car parking spaces!


With buses into York every 10 minutes, prioritised traffic lights and dedicated bus lanes on main routes, our Park & Ride buses can get in and out of York quickly! Plus, with fewer stopping points than local bus services, the Park & Ride buses are much faster than driving into the city at peak times.

Easy to use

It couldn’t be easier to use Park & Ride - buy your ticket in advance on the First Bus App, park your car free of charge, sit back and relax! Contactless payments are accepted on our buses too, so there’s no need to worry about having cash on you.

Great value

It costs just £3.30 for an adult return ticket. Even better, up to three children (aged 16 years or under) can travel free of charge when accompanied by one fare-paying adult. Discounts are also available for regular Park & Ride users!

So, next time you’re driving to York, avoid the hassle and expense of parking in the city centre and try Park & Ride instead.
