Parking is free when you pay for your bus journey.  From Queen's Drive or Colwick Racecourse, you can buy a £3 Park and Ride group ticket (return travel on Citylink 1 or 2 buses for a group of up to 6 people) or use a Kangaroo ticket. Since March 1st 2015 due to contractual changes you are no longer able to use any NCT tickets to travel on this service - you can find out more about the changes by visiting the Ticket Changes webpage


Both parking and travel is free when using the Medilink service at both Queen's Drive and Wilkinson Street Park and Ride sites. Just park up and get on the bus!

Overnight Parking

The park and ride sites in Nottingham are all intended for daily use only. We cannot give you permission to park overnight in any of the sites and if you leave your car at anytime of the day or night, you do so at your own risk.

The tram park and ride sites do not lock the gates at night, however they reserve the right to do so if deemed necessary and the bus park and ride sites do lock their gates overnight. Any vehicles requiring release out of hours are subject to a release fee.

Free Car Care Scheme

Have peace of mind when you leave your car with us by using our free car care scheme. Our park and ride sites are patrolled by park and ride attendants, are monitored by CCTV and have been awarded the Park Mark Safer Parking Award for safety and security.
