The Seamer Road site will offer buses into the centre of Scarborough every day except Wednesdays throughout the summer.

Buses started running from the Filey Road Park and Ride site when restrictions were lifted in April as more people started to visit the town and offer a low-cost way of travelling without having to worry about parking.

From June 21, buses will run from both the Seamer Road and Filey Road sites at least every 15 minutes from just after 7am (9am on Sundays), with buses back from Aquarium Top (South

Bay) or York Place until around 6.45pm.

Ben Gilligan, Area Director at East Yorkshire buses, said: “We’re pleased the Park and Ride will be fully operational from next week as even more people flock to enjoy our beautiful Yorkshire coast.

“The Park and Ride is the easiest way to get into Scarborough and helps reduce congestion for everyone visiting.”

Buses are safe and clean, with social distancing in place and face coverings required unless exempt.

Passengers are asked to pay by contactless or buy an app ticket in advance if they can, and to not travel if they feel unwell.

Both Park and Ride sites offer lots of free parking, toilets and enclosed waiting areas with social distancing measures in place.
