Park and Ride concessions and POP cards

Day tickets for the Durham Park and Ride service are available from each of the three Park and Ride sites for only £2.00.

Day tickets offer unlimited travel throughout the day on any of our Park and Ride buses or the Cathedral bus. Payment can be made with coins, notes or a credit/debit card. If you experience any problems using the ticket machine, help is always at hand. There is an operator's office at the Belmont site, while the machines at Sniperley and Howlands are linked to the office by a system that allows you to see and talk to an operator.


If you are entitled to a concession you will need to show your pass to the driver. You may also be asked to prove concession entitlement or age to the bus driver.

The Park and Ride service is free after 9.30am Monday to Friday and all day Saturday for concessionary bus pass holders. Between 7.00am and 9.30am there is a 50p flat fare for customers using a County Durham concessionary bus pass.

Young people under the age of 16, who are accompanied by an adult over 21 years old, can travel for free.

POP Cards

Park and Ride users can purchase a POP Pay As You Go smartcard which can be topped up online at the Popcard Pop Shop.
