We are developing a new park and ride site in Yate to support more sustainable travel in the town and surrounding area.

How the park and ride will help reduce traffic levels

The new Yate park and ride will be a mobility hub that encourages people who travel locally and into Bristol to use different ways to travel.

They will be able to leave their car at the park and ride and chose to:

  • use public transport
  • cycle
  • share a car journey with someone else
  • walk

This will reduce congestion on the A432 Badminton Road corridor, improving air quality, emissions and public health.

What the park and ride will look like

The park and ride is being built next to the South Gloucestershire Council offices on Badminton Road. 

It will have:

• 198 parking bays (including disabled, motorcycle, Car Club and car share bays)
• 38 electric vehicle (EV) charge points
• secure cycle parking for 46 bikes
• Brompton Dock bike hire facility
• new and improved local bus stops
• new pedestrian crossings
• click and collect parcel lockers

There will be bus services to take park and ride users into Bristol and Yate.

It will also be available for rail users at Yate Station, which is just an 8-minute walk from the site.

In the future, the site will be used by metrobus services when they extend to the area.

How the park and ride will be managed

The new Yate Park and Ride was given planning permission in November 2020.

You can read the planning application.

The £3.6 million project is being funded by the West of England Combine Authority and Local Enterprise Partnership through the Investment Fund, administered by the West of England Combined Authority.

We will manage the park and ride.

There will be a charge to everyone that uses the car park except for people using buses or the EV charge points.

Project timetable

We have approximate timescales and will keep the community up to date on the scheme as it progresses.

  • autumn 2020 – planning consent
  • early 2021 – work starts on site
  • autumn 2021 – site opens
