Scarborough & District run two Park & Ride services:
- 64: Seamer Road (A64 to the south west) - Aquarium Top - St Thomas Street - York Place
- 165: Filey Road (A165 to the south) - University Campus - Aquarium Top - St Thomas Street - York Place
Buses run at least every 12 minutes, non-stop from the large free car parks straight to the town centre, from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.
Tickets are 90p each way, and children (under 18) travel at half-price. A family day return ticket (2 adults and 2 children) is £3.60
From 1 April 2012, holders of national concessionary passes will no longer travel free, but can buy a return ticket at a reduced rate of £1.
For regular travellers, weekly (£8.50) and monthly (£30.00) tickets are available from the on-site ticket machine, and an annual ticket (£300) can be bought from EYMS, telephone 01482 327142
York has an excellent network of Park & Ride services, run by First York:
- 2 (Green Line): Rawcliffe Bar (junction of A19 and A1237) - Clifton Green - Railway Museum - Station Gardens - Museum Street (returns direct to Clifton Green)
- 3 (White Line): Askham Bar (A1036 to the west, near A64) - Blossom Street - Station - Rougier Street - Tower Street
- 7 (Red Line): Designer Outlet (junction of A19 and A64) - Fulford - Fishergate - Clifford Street - Rougier Street - Station (returns direct to Fulford)
- 8 (Yellow Line): Grimston Bar (A1079 to the east, near A64) - Hull Road - Morrisons - Peasholme Green - Piccadilly (returns direct to Hull Road)
- 9 (Silver Line): Monks Cross (A1036 to the east, near A64) - Heworth Road - Stonebow - Rougier Street
All routes run at least every 10 minutes, 7 days a week. The last bus from York is at about 8pm (6pm on Sundays)
With the exception of the 7 (Red Line), Park & Ride routes run an express service, calling at only one or two stops between the car park and the city centre. The 7 (Red Line) calls at all stops along the route.
A day return ticket costs £2.40. Up to 2 children (under 16) can travel free with every fare-paying adult. National Bus Passes are accepted on Park & Ride subject to usual time restrictions, but when boarding at the Park & Ride site there is a single fare of 50p (this does not apply when boarding at any other stop).
For frequent users, smartcards are available from all Park & Ride offices, which can either be set to give unlimited travel for a week (£9.20) or a month (£34.50), or a stored value card (which works like Oyster pay as you go) that charges you £2.05 per journey, with a minimum top-up of £5. There is a refundable depoist of £4 on all smartcards.
Parking is not allowed overnight at any of the Park & Ride sites, and many of the car parks are locked after the last bus.
There are plans to develop new Park & Ride sites on the A59 to the west, and to replace the Askham Bar site with a larger car park nearer the A64, within the next 2 or 3 years.
