Park and ride gets fes­tive

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

LE­ICES­TER’S Park and Ride is giv­ing pas­sen­gers a fab­u­lous fes­tive fare gift to en­cour­age vis­i­tors to the city to leave their cars be­hind.

From Box­ing Day to New Year’s Eve (in­clu­sive), day and group tick­ets will cost just £2 from 2pm each day.

Whether peo­ple are trav­el­ling into the city cen­tre for the sales, sight­see­ing or en­joy­ing the fun in Ju­bilee Square, the fes­tive fare give­away means that Le­ices­ter’s Park and Ride is an even bet­ter way to travel over the fes­tive pe­riod.

Coun­cil­lor Pam Pos­nett, Le­ices­ter­shire County Coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for pas­sen­ger trans­port, said: “Park and Ride is al­ready a great value way to travel into the city and the fare of­fer makes it even bet­ter value.

“If you’re plan­ning to travel into the city for the sales, to meet friends or to have fun on the Wheel of Light or ice rink in Ju­bilee Square, it makes even more sense to leave your car be­hind at one of our three Park and Ride sites and take the bus in­stead.”

Le­ices­ter’ Park and Ride is run­ning ev­ery day in De­cem­ber (ex­cept Christ­mas Day).

The ex­tra ser­vices on Sun­days and Box­ing Day run from 10am to 5.30pm, while the nor­mal daily ser­vice op­er­ates from 7am to 7pm.

Buses run ev­ery 15 min­utes from the three sites at Meynell’s Gorse, En­derby, and Birstall.

The ser­vice is not run­ning on New Year’s Day and the nor­mal ser­vice pat­tern will re­sume from Tues­day, Jan­uary 2.

More de­tails of the ad­di­tional ser­vices, fes­tive timeta­bles and fares are avail­able from the Le­ices­ter Park and Ride web­site at www. le­ices­ter­parkan­dride. co.uk
