Extra coach parking in London on offer for May and June
An extra 1000 coach parking spaces will be available in central London during spring following a partnership between The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) and bus operator Go-Ahead.
The initiative starts on Monday, May 16 to make 30 coach parking spaces available to CPT members each day at Go-Ahead’s Camberwell (20) and Stockwell (10) bus depots for a 6-week trial period.
The trial is due to conclude on Friday, June 24.
The coach parking facilities, near to many of the Capital’s key tourist attractions, will be open between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and charged at £35 per day plus an administration charge of £1.50 and VAT.
CPT’s Chief Executive, Simon Posner said: “I am confident that a successful 6-week trial will be the catalyst for further initiatives and we will certainly be looking to make the arrangement with Go-Ahead at Camberwell and Stockwell a permanent one.
“Coach parking and the picking-up and setting-down passengers has long been a contentious issue for operators visiting the Capital, and I hope this announcement goes some way to addressing their concerns whilst also ensuring that coaches can continue to operate in this great city.”
Same day bookings will not be accepted.
The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) is the national trade association representing bus and coach operators.
