Late night park and Ride on Thursdays
First York has extended Park & Ride services to run every Thursday evening from Thursday 16 November until Saturday 23 December. These services proved popular last year allowing people to enjoy the York Christmas Festival for longer, which starts on Thursday.
York Business Improvement District (BID) has worked with the council to offer people free parking at Piccadilly multi-storey car park from 3-9pm every Thursday and Friday. Free parking is available every Thursday and Friday from 16 November until 22 December.
Usage of the Piccadilly car park has reduced since the advanced car parking space availability signs, which used to be available on arterial routes into the City, stopped working 4 years ago.
Similarly the “York Live” on line parking information – which should be updated in “real time” – continues to project an inaccurate picture of space availability in the City centre (click here to test)
Park & Ride services will run every 15 minutes from all Park & Ride sites every Thursday. The Designer Outlet service will run later from Monday to Saturday.
Full timetable information is available online, but most services will now operate until 9.30pm on Thursday evenings, or Monday to Saturday from the Designer Outlet.
The Park & Ride services will run every 15 minutes, with the last services leaving the city centre at the following times:
Askham Bar (white line – route 3) – Rougier Street at 9.33pm
Designer Outlet (red line – route 7) – York Railway Station at 9.46pm
