  1. Q. How much do under 19s need to pay?
    A. Under 19s can travel for £1.00 but must pay £2.20 if parking a vehicle at either of the park & ride sites. Additional passengers who are under 19 need to pay £1.00 per person, or a group saver ticket can be purchased. Under 19s must provide ID when boarding the bus to qualify for the reduced fare. You can find out more information on suitable ID on the Concessionary Fares page.

  3. Q. How much do I need to pay if I have an English Concessionary Pass?
    A. For the Park & Ride sites at Perdiswell and Sixways, English Concessionary Travel pass holders can travel for free after 9.30am Monday - Friday, and all day at weekends, but the driver must pay £2.20 if parking a vehicle at the Park & Ride site. (Back to the top)

  4. Q. Do I need to pay if I have a Blue Badge?
    A. Blue Badge holders can park and travel for free if carrying a Worcestershire Concessionary Bus Pass and displaying a Blue Badge. Please park in the designated spaces and collect a ticket from a member of staff when using the Perdiswell site to exit through the barrier before leaving.

    If using the Sixways site (which is unmanned), call the central control from the barrier at the time of exit to request to have the barrier lifted.

    Whichever site is being used, passengers will need to obtain a ticket from the machine to present to the driver. Those with a Blue Badge but no Worcestershire Concessionary Bus Pass can park in the designated spaces but will need to pay £2.20 to travel, obtaining a ticket from the ticket machines.

  5. Q. Can I get a larger size copy of the Park & Ride timetables?
    A. For people with difficulty reading timetable prints, larger copies are available on request from the Worcestershire Hub on 01905 765 765.

  6. Q. Are the buses easily accessible?
    A. All the buses on the W1, W2 and W3 Park & Ride routes are low floor for easy access with wheelchairs and pushchairs. The buses are fully DDA compliant and therefore there is room for a wheelchair to be clamped in.

  7. Q. Where can I find directions to the two park and ride sites?
    A. Both the Perdiswell and the Sixways sites are explained in detail on how to get to them easily on the Find a Park & Ride Site page.
