New park and ride alleviates parking problems at Scarborough Hospital
A temporary park and ride system has been introduced at Scarborough Hospital to help with parking problems while the new car park is under construction.
The project to build a new car park has put significant pressure on parking space and is due to continue until late March. To help ease the situation York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched the park and ride scheme from Seamer Road car park direct to the hospital which will start from 13 January. A shuttle bus will travel back and forth from the park and ride site to the main reception approximately every nine minutes at a cost of just £1 per person per journey and the parking is free.
James Hayward, Capital Planning Programme Director, said: “The park and ride scheme is open to anyone coming to the hospital and we hope people will take advantage of it to help alleviate the parking problems the construction is causing. We are aware the lack of parking has caused considerable inconvenience to staff, visitors and local residents and this is something we take very seriously.”
The service will operate Monday to Fridays with the first bus departing from Seamer Road car park at 07.30am and the last bus departing Scarborough Hospital main reception at 6.00pm and there is no need to book. The Seamer Road car park has been chosen as it is well lit, has waiting rooms and good security arrangements.
