Bridlington Park and Ride Returns for Summer Season

Bridlington Park and Ride Returns for Summer Season

Published by Matthew Pells at 6:02am 6th April 2019.

Bridlington’s Park and Ride service returns for the summer season today (Saturday, 6 April), and will run right through until early November.

This year, the service – provided by East Riding of Yorkshire Council – will have a new operator. Following a competitive tendering process, Stagecoach will be operating the service until the end of the 2023 season.

The car park, at South Cliff, has over 1000 spaces, including 50 disabled spaces. The first bus on each day will be at 9.30am, and different timetables will apply, depending on the season, with frequent buses running until 6.15pm each day.

The bus picks up and drops off at the Park and Ride terminus and again directly opposite the harbour top/in front of South Cliff gardens, and also at East Riding Leisure Bridlington during certain weekends, holidays and Bank Holidays.

In addition, during the six- week school summer holidays, the service will be extended until 8pm each evening.

The cost is £5.00 for all-day parking for all vehicles, including disabled drivers. This cost includes transport into Bridlington and the return trip for up to five people. Passengers can choose to travel on the Park and Ride bus or on a scenic land train.

In 2018, 52,300 individuals paid to use Park and Ride, which was an increase of 1,300 on the previous year.

The council say that the park and ride service has helped to keep over 50,000 vehicles off the town centre’s roads. They hope the service will help boost the town’s economy by encouraging visitors to stay a little bit longer, and possibly enjoy a meal in the town before heading home.

Stagecoach will be providing the service on behalf of the council until November, 2023.

Here is the full list of prices for Park and Ride 2019:

  • £5.00 for all day parking and transport for up to five people on either the bus or land train
  • £1.50 single ticket on the bus (if not parked) (Same price as last year)
  • £2.50 return ticket on the bus (if not parked)  (Same price as last year)
  • £1.00 single ticket for concessionary pass holders (if not parked) (Same as last year)
  • £1.50 return ticket for concessionary pass holders (if not parked).  (Same as last year)

The car park at South Cliff provides public toilets and covered waiting areas, and is monitored by CCTV. The low-floor buses are all easy access.

For an even more scenic route, passengers can choose to travel on the South Promenade land train, and this cost is included in the £5.00 Park and Ride fare. The land trains run to Bridlington Spa.
