How do you and your staff commute to work?

24th January 2017

The new Park and Ride facility at junction 34 of the M6 has been delivered as part of the Bay Gateway project, which provides a direct link from the motorway to the Heysham peninsula.

The Park and Ride operates from Monday to Saturday, with buses running every 30 minutes between the Park and Ride and Lancaster Bus Station via George Street. On weekdays, services begin at 6.50am at the Park and Ride, with the last service back to the site leaving Lancaster Bus Station at 7.35pm.

From February, there will be a variety of pay and display and ticketing options available. Facilities include a fully enclosed bus shelter with seating and CCTV security.

The site is open 24-hours a day so is ideal for people wanting to car share to longer distances, without needing to worry about their car being locked in.

County Councillor John Fillis, Lancashire County Council cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "The new Park and Ride is a key feature of the Bay Gateway and aims to boost Lancaster's economy by improving access to the city, and reducing congestion which also has wider environmental benefits.

"Parking at the site will be convenient for people who want to use the bus, or the River Lune Cycleway to complete their journey. It's also a good place to meet for anyone who wants to car share on their way into Lancaster.
