Park and ride buses for Whitehaven Festival

Park and ride buses will ferry people to and from the Whitehaven Festival to help ease congestion in the town centre.

Travel firm Reays will run a fleet of buses from Westlakes Science Park and The Lakes College at Lillyhall, dropping off passengers and picking them up again at Whitehaven’s multi-storey car park or the bus stop outside the town’s Tesco superstore.

The 36-65-seat vehicles will run for up to 14 hours a day, with free parking available throughout at both out-of-town locations for shuttle service users.

Reays, which was the official transport provider for Radio 1's Big Weekend in Carlisle last year, will also operate a late-night bus service to take revellers home from both the festival’s Friday and Saturday headline concerts.

The late-night buses will run from outside Tesco up until midnight, going as far as Workington, Maryport and Cockermouth, with passengers able to get off at designated stops through to the early hours of the morning.

The park and ride service will run between both satellite car parks on Friday June 1 from 5-11.30pm, on Saturday 9.30am-11.30pm and on Sunday 10.30am-10.30pm.

The on-the-day return fare is £3 for adults and £2 for children aged between three and 16.

The late-night Friday and Saturday bus service for non-drivers, which will also stop at Distington, Harrington, Siddick and Flimby, will leave from 11.15pm to midnight.

Tickets for both the park and ride and late-night services can only be bought on-the-day on the buses.

All service schedules will tie in with the finishing times of the headline acts of Katherine Jenkins (Friday), Best of the 70s (Saturday) and The Charlatans (Sunday).
