New Park and Ride Scheme at the Countess of Chester Hospital
The Countess has introduced a Park and Ride scheme for patients and visitors in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council. Available from the Council’s Upton and Wrexham Road Park and Ride car parks, buses will stop directly outside the Countess on Liverpool Road and run every 12 minutes. The cost will be £1 per return journey with a maximum stay of 6 hours.
The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “The new service benefits hospital patients, visitors and the environment. Our buses use the very latest enviro-clear engine technology and will ease congestion at the Countess of Chester Hospital site.
“Our Park & Ride service provides a stress free visit without the hassle of traffic or parking. Information about the new services and all available stops can be found on the council website or at any of our Park and Ride sites.”
Richard Baird added: “I am pleased we have been able to work with colleagues at Cheshire West and Chester Council to improve the links to the hospital and we hope that patients and visitors will benefit from the improved transport and parking options in 2018.”
Park and Ride bus times:
Monday to Friday: every 12 minutes between 7am and 7pm
Saturdays: every 12 minutes between 8am and 7pm
Sundays and Bank Holidays: every 15 minutes between 9.30am and 6pm
