Park and Ride

The Trust has recently reached an agreement with Cheshire West and Chester Council to introduce a Park and Ride scheme for patients and visitors to the Chester hospital. Available from the Council’s Upton and Wrexham Road Park and Ride car parks, buses stop directly outside the Countess on Liverpool Road and run every 12 minutes. The cost is £1 per return journey.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “The new service will benefit 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.”

Chief Operating Officer Lorraine Burnett said: “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.”
