About Park & Ride
Park & Ride in Shrewsbury operates from three sites. All of these sites have closed-circuit television in the car parks for your vehicle's security.
Park & Ride sites can be found at:
- Oxon Business Park
- Meole Brace Retail Park
- Harlescott, near Tesco
Cycle parking is available at the Meole Brace and Oxon Park & Ride sites.
All buses have special low floor access at the front, and are ideal for those with pushchairs and people who are less mobile. Buses also have a ramp to enable access for wheelchair users.
From Monday to Saturday, express buses from all sites to the town centre run every 10 minutes from the beginning of the day until 11am, and then from 3pm until 6.30pm. Buses run every 15 minutes between 11am and 3pm.
Bank holiday services operate from all three sites every 15 minutes. The first bus leaves the car park at 10.30am, and the last bus leaves the town centre at 5.10pm.
