Changes to Park & Ride services from 1st June 2020
Park & Ride services at Enderby and Meynell’s Gorse will resume from Monday 1st June 2020. The site at Birstall is currently being used as a Covid-19 testing centre and will therefore remain out of use for passengers until further notice.
To facilitate space for social distancing, buses will operate to a limited capacity: double-decker 13 passengers and single-decker 8 passengers. Passengers will be asked to board from the back of the bus to the front to ensure social distancing is observed.
Payment by contactless card will be introduced from Monday 15 June 2020. Where passengers need to pay by cash, it is requested that the exact fare is given to minimise contact with drivers. To assist with this, a flat rate of £3 for a day ticket will be introduced.
Concessionary passes can also be used.
What other safety measures will be in place?
The following additional measures will be put in place to ensure customers and staff remain safe while using the service.
On vehicles, perspex screens will be affixed to drivers’ doors and stickers will be used to indicate the availability of seats.
At the terminal buildings, toilet facilities and seating will remain closed. There will also be additional signage at terminal buildings and car parks encouraging passengers to socially distance and practice good hand hygiene. Terminal buildings will remain open and will be regularly cleaned and checked throughout the day. Appropriate risk assessments have been carried out as part of the re-opening process.
Free travel for NHS workers
NHS workers can continue to use the Park and Ride service free of charge, however we are encouraging people to follow Government advice too, if possible, use your own vehicle.
