How many spaces are there?

There are over 1000 spaces including over 50 disabled spaces.

Are there any toilets on site? 

Yes, there are toilets, including disabled and special needs. There’s also an information kiosk. Two cafés operate on a franchise and open according to seasonal demand.

Can we just hop on the bus or land train?

Yes, once you have paid £5.50 to park your vehicle, up to five persons (including the driver) can travel and return on the transport from town. You can travel at any time that day, e.g. you can visit the beach first or walk the beach into town and catch the transport back or vice versa.

If you want to split up as a group, some go shopping whilst others play on the beach, then get your tickets to ride from the coach first.

People with concession passes will no longer be able to use them on the Park and Ride service and will now be subject to paying supplemented fares.

Please note: Land trains will be running from Monday 12 April but face coverings must be worn.

Where does the bus pick up from?

The bus picks up and drops off at the park and ride terminus and again directly opposite the harbour top/in front of South Cliff gardens and also at East Riding Leisure Bridlington during specified weekends, holidays and Bank Holidays. There are no intermediate pick up points.

In addition, during the six- week school summer holidays, the service will be extended until 8pm each evening.
