Bridlington’s popular Park and Ride service reopens for business on Saturday, 24 March, and runs until 4 November, 2018.
Park and Ride offers a frequent service, with buses running regularly from South Cliff Holiday Park to the harbour. Costing only £4.50 per vehicle (up to five passengers), Park and Ride represents excellent value for money, and buses run until 6.15pm each day.
The bus will also run to East Riding Leisure Bridlington in the heart of the seafront most weekends and, during the six-week school summer holidays, the service will be extended until 8pm each evening and will also serve East Riding Leisure Bridlington every day, as well as the harbour area.
In 2017, 51,358 vehicles paid to use Park and Ride, which was an increase of 973 vehicles on the previous year.
The bus route has been amended for the first part of the summer, to avoid Hilderthorpe Road, where ongoing major improvement works are continuing.
This year, the buses will be operated on behalf of the council by East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS), following a tendering process.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of the council, said: “Bridlington Park and Ride is a real asset to the resort, keeping over 50,000 vehicles off the town centre’s roads.
“It’s particularly pleasing that we will again be able to extend Park and Ride this summer into the early evening and to East Riding Leisure Bridlington, which will boost the town’s economy by encouraging visitors to stay that little bit longer, and maybe enjoy a meal in the town before heading home.
“We are continually looking to improve the service, whilst reducing costs to make it as efficient as possible. I am delighted that EYMS are able to provide the service on behalf of the council for the forthcoming season.”
Here is the full list of prices for Park and Ride 2018:
£4.50 for all day parking and transport for up to five people on either the bus or land train

There is secure parking for up to 1000 vehicles, including motor homes, and the car park, which boasts public toilets and covered waiting areas, is monitored by CCTV. The low-floor buses are all easy access, and offer an environmentally friendly and easy way into the town.
For an even more scenic route, passengers can choose to travel on the South Promenade land train, and this cost is included in the £4.50 Park and Ride fare. The land trains run to Bridlington Spa.
