    Bath Park & Ride locations

    The entrances to the Park & Rides sites are locked after the last buses have operated but the exits are left open to enable vehicles to be retrieved later. However, lighting is switched off after the last buses have returned and any vehicles are left inside entirely at the owner’s risk.

    Bristol Park & Ride locations

    All sites (except Lyde Green Park & Ride) are locked and any cars locked in will be subject to a release fee. If your vehicle is locked in, please call 0117 903 1550. Bristol City Council retains the right to charge for the call out service.

    You are able to collect your vehicle at the Lyde Green Park & Ride past closing time, but please be aware that the maximum stay is 12 hours (no limit on Sundays and Public Holidays).
