City of York Council, Eco Depot, Hazel Court, York, YO10 3DS (01904) 551525



Following a number of complaints about idling vehicles in the short stay car park at York station a pop-up ‘Kick the Habit’ anti-idling campaign was arranged as part of York’s Clean Air Day 2020 activities.

A large number of temporary ‘Kick the Habit’ signs were erected and CYC air quality officers were present on Clean Air Day to raise awareness and answer any questions.

Many cars were observed coming and going but we are pleased to report that the vast majority were quick to park up and switch off their engines. Please keep up the good work to protect everyone’s health!

Thanks to LNER for supporting the campaign and allowing us to retain some ‘Kick the Habit’ signage at the station. More photos of the event can be found in the gallery.
