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.


Our park and ride services at Belmont, Howlands and Sniperley have re-opened and will run regularly. Howlands park and ride service is operating with a revised route.

We are introducing a range of measures so that you can travel safely:

  • Hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser station are available at each site.
  • You must wear a face covering on the bus (unless you are exempt) you may be challenged if you are not wearing a face covering. See our Latest travel advice page for advice on face coverings.
  • There will be a maximum of fourteen passengers per bus - you will be advised by the driver and posters about where to sit.
  • Our machines will be cleaned regularly but we ask you to pay by contactless if possible.
  • The toilets will be open and cleaned regularly.

Day tickets offer unlimited travel throughout the day on any of our Park and Ride buses or the Cathedral bus. 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.

POP cards allow the user to travel for a discounted fare of £1.70.
