Fast routes into Leicester. Every 15 minutes.
Passengers are being advised to continue to wear face coverings on the buses.
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. Find more information about the Greenline Electric Bus Project and view a film of the new vehicles on YouTube
Payment by contactless card is now available. 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.
