Diwali 2021 Park & Ride Service
A special Park & Ride service is being laid on for two of Leicester’s most important and popular events – the Diwali Switch On and Diwali Day.
The Diwali Park & Ride service will be operating from the Birstall site, located at Loughborough Road, LE4 4NN – so why not avoid the city centre congestion by taking the bus?
For Diwali Switch On, Sunday 24 October, the service will operate from Birstall Park & Ride site to Abbey Park Road from 4pm until 8pm. Return journeys will run from Abbey Park Road starting at 8.30pm, with the last bus leaving at 10pm.
On Diwali Day, Thursday 4 November, the service will operate from Birstall Park & Ride site to Abbey Park Road from 4pm until 8pm. Return journeys will run from Abbey Park Road starting at 8.30pm, and the last bus will leave at 10pm.
The cost is £4 per adult for a return journey or £6 for a group of up to five people travelling in a car together, and £1 for concessionary pass holders. Please note that Park & Ride Season Tickets will not be valid for this service.
