About the Park and Ride service
Services operate from 7am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday, with buses running every 15 minutes. Parking is free for bus service users at each of the Leicester Park & Ride sites, located at Enderby, Birstall and Meynell’s Gorse.
Each site has a highly secure car park with on-site security & CCTV. Facilities include disabled parking spaces, on-site toilets and baby changing facilities (Birstall and Enderby only). Our bus shelters are covered and all services are operated using low-floor buses with wheelchair/ buggy spaces available to customers. Customers should note that some on-site P&R facilities are unavailable as a result of Coronavirus safety measures being in place.
Please note that overnight parking is not permitted at any of the Park and Ride sites.

Electric buses were introduced on the Park and Ride services on 24 May 2021. This significant change is part of the wider Greenline Electric Bus Project, aimed at improving air pollution, relieving congestion and improving accessibility on key bus routes.
