Park and Ride

Why Park and Ride

Some of the route uses bus lanes and there are other bus priority measures to speed the journey.
You avoid the stress of traffic congestion and looking for parking places.
Huge savings on long stay car parking charges can be made.

Location of Park and Ride

You leave your car (or cycle) free of charge and travel on a frequent, modern and comfortable bus into the heart of Swindon. There are many good reasons to do this:

Parking is free (you only pay for the bus fare) and the site has CCTV, waiting rooms and toilets.


Covered accommodation is provided for cycles.

Easy Access

The buses are designed to allow easy access. They have ramps and all can also 'kneel down' at bus stops. There’s room for buggies and shopping trolleys and buses can carry one wheelchair.
