Park and Ride has been developed as a way of reducing traffic volumes and the impact of traffic in the city centre.
There are four P&R car parks: South Winchester, Pitt, and the East Winchester car parks -Barfield and St Catherine's. There are now 1861 P&R parking spaces now available. The car parks are all covered by CCTV, and are all awarded the Park Mark Safer Parking status for security and safety.
The Park and Ride car parks are available for use 7 days a week, but the bus service currently operates Monday to Saturday only. There are no buses on Sundays or public/bank holidays when parking is free in town.
The route of distinctive P&R buses (in two-tone green livery) serves all of the P&R car parks and the key destinations in between.
One P&R ticket covers one car and its occupants for parking and travel for the whole day at a maximum cost of just £3.
