FOR Cardiff Park and Ride

FOR Cardiff has organised a park and ride service leading up to the festive period to help ease congestion within the city centre.

Avoid the Christmas parking rush and take a bus from County Hall in Cardiff Bay to Canal Street, near John Lewis and the Christmas Markets in the City Centre.

Starting from Saturday 18 November, the service will run for 6 weeks every Saturday until the 23 December.

The first bus will be from County Hall at 9am, and the last bus will be from Canal Street at 7:30pm, with buses running every 20 minutes.

This service is in partnership with Cardiff Bus and Cardiff Council.

Emily Cotterill, FOR Cardiff and Councillor Dan De’Ath, Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning & Transport Cardiff Council.

Emily Cotterill, Head of Projects and Engagement at FOR Cardiff said:

The start of the festive period marks a busy and exciting period for Cardiff as a major shopping destination.

We want as many people as possible to use the park and ride service to make Christmas shopping enjoyable for everyone while relieving road congestion and pressure on often oversubscribed car parks in the city centre.
