Councillor Tony Dignum, Leader of Chichester District Council, says: “We’re delighted that the free Park and Ride service is returning for Christmas 2018. It has proved to be very popular in the past and we hope that this year will be no different.

“If you’ve used the service before you will know the benefits of parking at the Park and Ride facility at Chichester College and then continuing the rest of your journey into the city centre by public transport.

“Chichester is a popular shopping destination at Christmas so the Park and Ride service provides residents and visitors with a more convenient and less stressful alternative to using their car. With a dedicated bus every 15 minutes, shoppers and families can benefit from a quick and reliable journey avoiding congestion. An increase in visitors to the city centre also provides a welcome boost for traders in the run-up to Christmas.”
