The Chester Park and Ride bus service was started by Chester City Council in 1984 and has served the people of Chester all years since then. The service is owned by Cheshire West and Chester Council and operated by Stagecoach.
For both routes use the bus stop at the junction of George Street and Northgate Street just outside the City Walls for easy access to the City Centre, about a three minute walk.

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The four current routes have been replaced by two new routes, PR1 The Blue Line and PR2 The Green Line, that will operate ‘cross-city’ to offer more stops, meaning more travel options.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.
Car parking is free.
Adult return bus fare £2, with up to two accompanied children (under 16 years) travelling free. Tickets can be purchased at the Park and Ride.
Frequent traveller? Why not take advantage of our saver books of tickets? Books of six return tickets for the price of five (£10) are available to purchase from the attendants on site. Plus if you have a Charisma Card show this to the attendant when you buy a saver book and you’ll be given another ticket for free.
The Park and Ride service is excluded from the concessionary travel scheme.
