Public Asked About Scarborough's Park and Ride

Public Asked About Scarborough's Park and Ride

Published by Jon Burke at 11:14am 12th February 2019.

You can now have your say on proposals for Scarborough's Park and Ride services.

North Yorkshire county council has opened its public consultation on its options for the two sites, which are:

  • Completely close both the A64 Seamer Road site and A165 Filey Road site.
  • Completely close A64 Seamer Road site or the A165 site.
  • Operate seasonal services only. This will mean that no service will operate from either site from second Sunday in November to second Sunday before Easter and both sites will be closed during this time.

The Scarborough Park and Ride service was introduced as part of the Scarborough Integrated Transport Scheme in 2009.

The service is currently available seven days a week all year round, including Bank Holidays except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Buses run every 15 minutes, following a circular route stopping at South Bay and the town centre before returning to the park and ride sites.

The council consultation said:

"Initially the park and ride service had a significant positive impact with over 533,000 passenger journeys in 2011-2012.

Since 2012 there has been a steady decline in passenger numbers to 272,100 passenger journeys in 2017-2018. The passenger usage shows a considerable seasonal split with 215,900 (79%) of those journeys being between the second Sunday before Easter to the second Sunday in November."
