Park and Ride PR1 and PR2 services
Improved Park and Ride service
Cheshire West and Chester Council is pleased to announce a new improved Park and Ride Service, operated by our partners Stagecoach. Twelve brand new low-emission single-deck buses have been ordered and will enter service soon.
The four current routes have been replaced by two new routes, PR1 The Blue Line and PR2 The Green Line, that will operate ‘cross-city’ to offer more stops, meaning more travel options.
The introduction of the new service co-incides with an exciting project to improve the public realm in Frodsham Street that began on 27 June 2016 for six months.
We hope that you will enjoy our new buses and take advantage of quick and easy travel into the city centre.
The Park and Ride bus service runs every 12 minutes at peak times and every 15 minutes off-peak. With their special Park and Ride branding the buses are easy to spot and drop off and pick up points are conveniently located across Chester - and at certain points on route, see the timetables below for full details. Please note, on bank holidays a Sunday service is in operation.
