Park and ride bid to beat the traffic

A PARK and ride service will once again be taking visitors to and from Worcester’s popular Victorian Christmas Fayre this year.

The service will run from County Hall to Worcester Crowngate Bus Station on Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3 as the annual event returns to the city.

Now in its 25th year, the Victorian Christmas Fayre attracts visitors from across the county and beyond and will help to boost Worcester and Worcestershire’s tourism industries.

Worcestershire County Council and First Bus Group have joined forces to run the park and ride service which will run from 8.35am to 8.10pm on Saturday and from 9.45am to 5.10pm on Sunday.

Ticket prices are £3 per adult and £1 for children under 16. A £7 group ticket is also available which covers seven people.

Coun Alan Amos, cabinet member with responsibility for Highways, said: “This is another example of what can be achieved with the County Council working in partnership with First Buses”.

“The Park and Ride service will hopefully allow visitors from the county and beyond to enjoy the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Worcester Victorian Christmas Fayre”.

“As well as that it will ease congestion at what is traditionally a very busy time in and around Worcester.”
