Frequently Asked Questions
What does Park & Ride mean? And what can I expect?
“Park & Ride” does what it says on the tin. It’s a secure, purpose-built car parking facility with a designated shuttle service. It allows you to park near a city centre, popular attraction or – as with I Can Park and Ride – Birmingham Airport, and ride to where you need to be. You can expect to save money, as the prices are considerably cheaper than standard parking rates in city centres and NCP car parks.
Why choose Park & Ride?
Not everyone lives in an area that’s linked to Birmingham airport by public transport. And those who do often don’t want the hassle of buses and trains. But they still need to get to the airport for their flight. Park and Ride services allow people to make the trip to Birmingham airport by car, without the extortionate costs associated with on-site parking. It also reduces congestion around the area by using a shuttle bus to transfer passengers directly to the airport.
