Two new park and ride facilities have opened in Rolleston, providing increased access to public transport for the community.
The parks are at Foster Park where people can connect to the 85 service, while the newly-constructed car park adjacent to the Council offices is for connections to the 85, Yellow Line and 820 services.
Parking is free for those connecting to a bus service.
The Council park and ride facility, which was completed last month, has 79 parking spaces for park and ride users, along with six cycle racks, while the facility at Foster Park has space for over 50 cars.
Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says it’s been good to see so many people using the park and rides from day one. “This Council project captures our communities’ vision to ease congestion and provide more environmentally friendly transport options.”
Entrance to the Foster Park park and ride is from Broadlands Drive, and the Council park and ride is accessed from Norman Kirk Drive. Bus stops to board the bus are found on street next to these facilities.
