Elland Road Park and Ride

The Elland Road Park and Ride scheme is an 800 space Park and Ride facility, which has been constructed adjacent to Leeds Elland Road Stadium.

September 2014

 

Developing a Park and Ride in Leeds was identified as essential to managing traffic growth in the city.

 

A shortfall in parking facilities in the city centre is predicted to occur in Leeds city centre in the coming years. As the economy improves many of the ‘cleared site’ car parks will be developed, further increasing the pressure on the city centre.

 

An 800 space Park and Ride facility has been constructed on land adjacent to Elland Road Stadium. The project is a partnership between the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Council.

 

The project delivered:

    A staffed and secure Park and Ride site with CCTV.

     

    A bespoke bus service with special livery and free Wi-Fi, which operates every 10 minutes between 7.00am and 7.00pm, Monday to Saturday (except when football matches are taking place at the stadium).

     

    Passenger waiting facilities with toilets.

     

    Ticket kiosks enabling customers to purchase discounted smartcards. Customers may also purchase tickets from the driver should they wish.

     

    Introduction of bus priority measures along the route.

     

    Dedicated, specially trained drivers and supervisors.

     

     

The site opened in July 2014, with customer feedback being extremely positive to date. A promotion and information campaign has been developed, which will continue throughout the autumn. The introduction of discounted tickets for employees of companies is planned for autumn 2014.
