Park and Ride PR1 and PR2 services
Page updated: 1 July 2016
Cheshire West and Chester Council is pleased to announce a new improved Park and Ride Service, operated by our partners Stagecoach. Twelve brand new low-emission single-deck buses have been ordered and will enter service soon.
The four current routes have been replaced by two new routes, PR1 The Blue Line and PR2 The Green Line, that will operate ‘cross-city’ to offer more stops, meaning more travel options.
The introduction of the new service co-incides with an exciting project to improve the public realm in Frodsham Street that starts on 27 June 2016 for six months.
We hope that you will enjoy our new buses and take advantage of quick and easy travel into the city centre.
