Birstall P&R site has reopened from Monday 2nd November 2020

Fast routes into Leicester. Every 15 minutes.

Birstall Park & Ride service to resume from Monday 2 November 2020

The Park & Ride site at Birstall will reopen on Monday 2 November, with bus services running from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday.

The Service had remained suspended at Birstall as the site was being used as a Covid testing facility, and this will continue alongside the reopening of the Birstall site for Park & Ride services. 

Passengers can be reassured that strictly enforced one-way systems will be in place and they will not come into contact with people arriving for Covid tests. Signage is being installed to ensure that Park & Ride passengers and those visiting for Covid tests are directed to the relevant areas of the site, and there will also be marshals on site to ensure separation is maintained.

Across all three sites, buses will operate to a limited capacity in order to comply with social distancing requirements. We are currently running with a capacity of 12, increased to 15 if a number of passengers originate from the same household. 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 was introduced in 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 or group ticket is in operation.

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.
