A new parking payment system for St.Ives & Longstanton park and ride sites will go live on 14 May 2015. An explanation of the charging system is contained below.

All vehicles parking at either of the Busway Park & Ride sites will have a 1 hour free period.  This will enable people to drop-off and pick-up for free.  Any vehicles staying for more than 1 hour will be liable for a £1 charge.  This will be purchased from new ticket machines outside the main building at Longstanton or from the car park/edge of the concourse at St.Ives. These are separate from the existing ticket machines used to purchase the bus ticket on the platforms.  The receipt does not need to be displayed in the vehicle.

The £1 ticket will allow for the parking of one vehicle for up to 18 hours.  Should the customer wish to park for longer there is a set tariff of charging as follows:

  • Between 18 and 24 hours £10
  • Between 24 and 48 hours £20
  • Between 48 and 72 hours £30

72 hours is the maximum permitted stay.

Discounts are available for those wishing to purchase parking in advance on-line or via a mobile phone.  The prices for between 1 and 18 hours parking are as follows:

  • Weekly  £5      (up to 7 days)
  • 4 Weekly        £18
  • Annual          £230

A Bill Per Usage option is now available online which bills automatically, a month in arrears for the number of times a customer has used the car park.  This website is currently used for the Cambridge Park & Ride sites and has been modified to include both additional car parks.
