With the expectation that local beaches are going to be rather busy this summer – if it ever comes – BCP Council has introduced two new Park and Ride services.
The first service will be in operation in time for the May Bank Holiday weekend. Running throughout the summer services include:
- King’s Park to Boscombe Pier – £5 to park with a free Morebus service every 15 minutes. Dates include 29, 30 and 31 May, all weekends in June and July, daily from 24 July to 1 September.
- Poole Civic Centre to Sandbanks – free parking and £5 maximum family travel on Morebus Service 60 every 15 minutes. This will run from 24 July to 5 September.
Cllr Mike Greene, portfolio holder for transport and sustainability said: “We know that people will be eager to return to the area and make the most out of our award-winning beaches this summer. By facilitating park and ride at these key locations, we will improve our ability to welcome people back and manage the anticipated additional demand on the network. This will also help to ensure that everyone can enjoy a relaxed, memorable and safe experience at the busiest time of the year.”
