Coronavirus update

As a result of reduced demand for travel and staff shortages, some bus companies are running reduced timetables. You can find the latest updates at getdown.org.uk/bus/corona, and I will do my best to keep it up-to-date with news as it comes in, but if you have any specific questions then please contact the relevant bus company.

Please remember that you must wear a mask or face covering when using public transport unless you are exempt, and avoid paying with cash if possible to reduce the risk to yourself and others.

Park & Ride

Scarborough

Scarborough & District run two Park & Ride services:

Buses run at least every 12 minutes, non-stop from the large free car parks straight to the town centre, from 7am (8am on Sundays) to 6.40pm, 7 days a week. Please check the timetables for the last times from each stop.

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:

Map of Park and Ride services in York

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 £2.70. 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 80p (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 (£10.80), a month (£43.20) or a year (£432), or a stored value card (which works like Oyster pay as you go) that charges you £2.40 per journey, with a minimum top-up of £5. There is a refundable depoist of £5 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.
