More park and ride services resume in Norwich

Harford and Sprowston Park and Ride sites have reopened (route 502) to provide more ways for workers and shoppers to travel direct into the city centre.

This expansion in service follows the reopening of Thickthorn and Airport Park and Ride (route 501) last month, which has seen a steady increase in passenger numbers as more people begin to reconnect with others and head back into the city to work and visit the shops.

Sunday buses remain suspended with plans to resume this service in the autumn.

Buses will start at 0635 in the morning, running up to every 15 minutes (Mondays to Fridays) throughout the day and up to every 30 minutes on a Saturday.

Norwich Bus Station is now open for passenger enquiries and you are still encouraged you to buy your tickets in advance via the East Anglia Buses app or on Holdall. If you must buy your ticket on the bus, please pay contactless to avoid using cash.

Toilet facilities at the bus station and the Park and Ride sites have now reopened. Please remember that it is now mandatory to wear a face covering when travelling on buses, unless exempt, to protect drivers and fellow passengers.

You should also bring hand sanitiser with you to use before and after your journey and, where possible, wash your hands.

Postwick Park and Ride remains closed and continues to be used as a testing centre for Covid-19.

For more information and a full list of people who are exempt from wearing face coverings on public transport see the Konectbus website
