Leicester Park & Ride
If you’re driving into Leicester, why not try one of our Leicester Park & Ride services from Birstall, Enderby or Meynells Gorse?
Take the stress out of your morning rush to work or shopping trip into the city. Instead of negotiating the city traffic, you can sit back and relax on one of our fast, frequent, reliable and free WiFi-enabled buses – leaving you without the stress of finding a parking space, and no worry about when to go and feed a meter if you are taking your time over lunch.
A day ticket costs £3, but if you’re travelling with others, you can slash costs with a £3.50 group saver ticket for up to 5 people travelling in one vehicle (available at all times). Other saver tickets are available.
