Motorists are being encouraged to leave their cars behind and bypass city centre congestion as Leeds opens its first large-scale park-and-ride.
The eagerly awaited 800-space facility on Elland Road is expected to score with commuters when it opens its gates at 7am on Monday 23 June.
It has been fast-tracked so that visitors to the Tour de France Grand Départ will be able to use the facility on race day – Saturday 5 July.
Commuters can stay connected while on the move thanks to a modern low-emission fleet of Wi-Fi enabled buses serving the route.
The fleet will provide a 10-minute shuttle service into the city centre providing a bus every 10 minutes from 7am – 7pm Monday to Saturday, apart from Saturday Match Days when Leeds United are playing at home.
The park-and-ride is a partnership between Leeds City Council, West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Frist Bus.
Bob Dorr, service delivery director for First in West Yorkshire, said: “We look forward to welcoming customers on board who can enjoy free Wi-Fi and a relaxing journey right into the heart of the city.”
