Park and Ride
Chester West and Chester Council operates four Park and Ride sites around the City at Boughton Heath (off the A41 Whitchurch Road - nearest postcode CH3 5QD), Sealand Road (on the A548 opposite the car dealerships - nearest postcode CH1 4LD), Upton (Zoo - nearest postcode CH2 4BA) and Wrexham Road (off the A483 opposite Chester Business Park - nearest postcode CH1 2LS). Please note, postcodes are the nearest approximate postcodes for location purposes, as these sites are not postal addresses.
These are served by two limited stop cross-city services:
- Blue Line service PR1: Upton (Zoo) car park – Countess of Chester Hospital – Chester City Centre – Racecourse (Abode Hotel) – Wrexham Road car park
- Green Line service PR2: Boughton Heath car park – Boughton – Chester City Centre – Greyhound Retail Park – Sealand Road car park
New buses were introduced in 2016 which feature comfortable leather seats, free 4g wi-fi, an Air Chill system to keep you cool in the summer and all are wheelchair friendly. Buses are operated on our behalf by Stagecoach.
Buses operate at the following times*:
- Monday to Friday: every 12 minutes between 7am and 7pm
- Saturdays: every 12 minutes between 8am and 7pm
- Sundays and Bank Holidays: every 15 minutes between 9.30am and 6pm
* for exact journey times please check timetables on display at the sites
Tickets and fares
Tickets are available from machines near the bus stop at each car park. Please enter your car registration number and follow the simple steps on the touch screen machines. You will need to scan your ticket as you board the bus in both directions.
Parking is free for Park and Ride customers. Tickets cost £2.00 (return) per adult and up to two children can travel free if accompanied by an adult.
Saver tickets are available for frequent travellers – six return tickets can be purchased for the price of five (£10.00). We regret that Park and Ride is excluded from the Concessionary Fare scheme.
Parking only? No problem – you don’t have to use the bus. Parking only charges are £3 per car for up to six hours and £5 for over six hours (the charges are daily from 7am).
For people with disabilities
We aim to offer a high standard to all our customers and welcome wheelchair users. If you have a question about mobility scooter access please contact Stagecoach, our bus provider:

Buses are currently on diversion due to the closure of Frodsham Street and Gorse Stacks in the city centre. Notices advising where to board your return journey are on display at car park sites and leaflets are available on the bus. If in any doubt, please ask your driver who will be happy to help.
