Park and Ride on the increase

SALISBURY'S park and ride sites had 11 per cent more cars parked in them in November 2011 than in the same period in 2010 according to latest figures.

By encouraging people to use park and ride pollution and traffic congestion in the city centre has significantly dropped.

Currently more than 1,100 cars are left at park and ride sites each day, and there are many more non-parking customers using the park & ride buses.

Conservative Cllr Dick Tonge, cabinet member, said:

These figures are a great boost to the local economy. We want to encourage as many people as possible to use the park and ride sites over the coming years to cut down on congestion and pollution in the city. This will help make it a more attractive place to shop and work. It is also important to remember that parking and the bus trip into the city is free for concessionary bus pass holders.

Return tickets on park and ride services cost £2.50 and group returns for up to four people are £3.50.

Advance tickets are available at a discounted rate and timetables can be found at
