Organisations and staff who work on Pride Park and The Wyvern are being encouraged to Bike, Park and Ride during October.
Connected, the local sustainable travel initiative, are offering anyone who works at Pride Park or the Wyvern the opportunity to obtain a 10-trip bus ticket for free travel on the 111 Pride Park and Ride service, when they cycle into town and use the secure Park Bikeworks facilities.
The Park Bikeworks, located within the Cathedral Quarter on Full Street, provides free secure cycle parking, showers and changing facilities, as well as physiotherapy, repairs service, cycle and accessories shop and delicious cafe deli. It is open from 7.30am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm Saturday and from 10.00am – 4.00pm on Sundays.
The 111 Pride Park and Ride service bus stop is conveniently located only a short walk from Park Bikeworks on the Morledge outside the court (C6). The service, operated by Littles Travel, runs every ten minutes from 7.00am – 7.00pm, Monday to Friday.
Councillor Martin Rawson, Cabinet Member for Planning, Environment and Regeneration said “Derby is already leading the way on the sustainable travel agenda, and by joining up green travel options in the city it further encourages environmentally friendly travel, as well as promoting physical activity”.
