The Poppleton Bar Park & Ride service is the UK’s first all-electric Park & Ride route. Brand new, locally-manufactured Optare buses offer a smooth, quiet, zero-emission ride into the city centre.

Rapid chargers at Poppleton Bar keep the buses’ batteries topped up throughout the day, plus trickle chargers in the car park area offer electric car owners the chance to recharge too.  Find out about electric cars and where to charge your vehicle in York

As part of the new P&R contract, starting in early 2018, CYC has secured electric buses for three of the six P&R routes, with brand new Euro 6 diesel buses completing the fleet.

York has also retrofitted the world’s first electric double-decker sightseeing bus. Transdev is currently working in partnership with City of York Council to convert a further five existing diesel vehicles to full electric drive.
