Bridlington Park And Ride Buses And The Iconic Land Trains Are Back For The Season

The popular Bridlington Park and Ride bus service is back for the spring and summer and will be running until Sunday, 3 November, seven days a week.

The Park and Ride site near South Cliff Holiday Park is open from 7am – 8pm, and charges will apply between those times. Transport links into town will start at 9.30am; times of the last bus back to the site will vary throughout the season.

The service – provided by the council – is operated by East Yorkshire Buses.

The car park, at South Cliff, has over 1000 spaces, including 50 disabled spaces. The bus picks up and drops off at the Park and Ride terminus and then drops off in front of South Cliff gardens and picks up across the road on the Harbour Top, and also runs to East Riding Leisure Bridlington during certain weekends, holidays and Bank Holidays.

The cost is £6.50 for all-day parking for all vehicles, including disabled drivers. This cost includes transport into Bridlington and the return trip for up to five people.

Passengers can choose to travel on the Park and Ride bus or on a scenic land train - the land train is operating at weekends only until 20 May. The land train will then run daily until 29 September, when it finishes for the season.

Some short stay parking spaces are available for Park and Ride customers, at 50p per hour, in the South Cliff car park, allowing stays of up to two hours. This fee does not include the cost of travel on the bus or land trains.

Here is the full list of prices for Park and Ride 2024:

£6.50 for all day parking and transport for up to five people on either the bus or land train

£2.00 single ticket on the bus (if not parked) bus or land train.

The car park at South Cliff offers public toilets and covered waiting areas and is monitored by CCTV. The low-floor buses are all easy access and offer an environmentally friendly and easy way into the town.

For an even more scenic route, passengers can choose to travel on the South Promenade land train and this cost is included in the Park and Ride fare. The land trains run to Bridlington Spa.

Visitors to Bridlington can also travel on the north land train between East Riding Leisure Bridlington and Sewerby Hall and Gardens, stopping at Limekiln Lane and Bondville Model Village, running every 30 minutes.

Councillor Barbara Jefferson, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Cabinet member for heritage and coastal, said: “The annual launch of Park and Ride and land trains in Bridlington always heralds the start of another great season in the town, and both services are a great boost to tourism and to the local economy. Here’s to a fantastic year on the East Riding coast!”
