There will be extended Park & Ride (P&R) services on Thursdays and Boxing Day.
In the lead up to Christmas, the council is working with First York to provide a late night shopping service on all Park&Ride routes every Thursday, with the last bus leaving the city centre on all routes at around 9.30pm. For exact timings visit www.itravelyork.info.
The extended service will run from Thursday 17 November to coincide with the biggest Christmas market in York’s calendar – York Christmas Festival (which includes St Nicholas Fair), which runs between 17 November and 23 December.
In addition to this, passengers will also be able to take advantage of travel on Boxing Day on three P&R routes (standard fares apply):
- Askham Bar (white line – route 3) – First bus at 7am from the site, last bus back from Tower Street at 6.40pm
- Designer Outlet (red line – route 7) – First bus at 7am from the site, last bus back from Rougier Street at 6.40pm
- Monks Cross (silver line – route 9) – First bus at 7am from the site, last bus back from Rougier Street at 6.40pm
All three services will operate at a 15 minute frequency throughout the day for all passengers and will serve all bus stops along the route.
