Following the measures announced by the Government earlier this week to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, the number of users travelling on the Shrewsbury park and ride service has significantly reduced across all three sites – Meole Brace, Harlescott and Oxon,

Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, said:

“Due to the fall in use of the service, and following the latest advice regarding social distancing, the park and ride service across all three sites will be suspended from the last journey this Saturday, 28 March, until further notice. This will of course be continually reviewed taking into consideration the latest advice.

“Whilst the park and ride service is suspended Shropshire Council is working with our partners to identify where best our transport services can be deployed to support essential services, key workers and our communities.”
