Council asks Tom Jones fans to help cut city congestion
7 August 2018Now last month’s postponed Tom Jones concert has been rescheduled, Cheshire West and Chester Council is encouraging fans to give the Park&Ride a try.
The service cuts traffic queues by sailing into the city on dedicated bus lanes and passengers can hop off at a variety of cross-city stops.
On Sunday 12 August the last bus back to the PR1 route of the Park&Ride will be 10.35pm from HQ/the Abode to Upton (the Zoo); and 10.57pm to Wrexham Road.
The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “If you’re coming to the concert on Sunday 12 August, please use the Park & Ride. You’ll be doing your bit to cut congestion in the city and it’ll make your journey in and out really easy.
“Every Park&Ride bus has USB charging, free wifi and comfy premium seating. The buses are frequent and have the very latest enviro-clear engines – so you’ll be saving the planet too. It’s just £2 for a return ticket and you can hop on and off all day.
”If you’re not attending the concert this weekend, why not give the Park&Ride a try for your daily commute, day out or shopping trip.”
More information about the extended service for the concert, timetables and routes are available on the Council’s website.
