Opening date for Yate Park and Ride

Commuters in Yate will be able to enjoy a more sustainable way to travel thanks to the opening of the town’s new park and ride site on Monday 7 February.

Yate Park and Ride is a new £4.5 million transport hub that will help reduce traffic along the congested A432 Badminton Road corridor by providing attractive alternative travel options such as public transport, cycling or car sharing.

The new facility on Badminton Road will be open seven days a week (excluding bank holidays) and includes 198 parking spaces and cycle parking for 46 bikes, as well as improved bus stops.

The site will provide an initial park and ride service using the existing bus network, with buses running approximately every 30 minutes. The A432 corridor between Bristol, Yate and Chipping Sodbury will continue to benefit from investment in public transport over the next five years, which will see bus service provision improve.

The car park will also be available for rail users at Yate Station, which is just an eight-minute walk away.

In the coming months further facilities will be installed at the park and ride including 38 electric vehicle (EV) charge points, a car club and click and collect lockers.

Initially, it will be free to park at the park and ride site all day. Parking charges will be introduced later at £2.60 a day, though parking will remain free for bus users and those parked in an EV charging bay and charging. Parking will also be free for those parked in disabled person's parking place and displaying a valid disabled person's badge.
