Weymouth Park and Ride is now open

Visitors to Weymouth can now park outside of town and catch a bus to the beach or centre of town.

There is also a park and ride service to Dorchester from the same site, which will accommodate up to 1,000 cars.

It costs £3.50 to park all day, which includes a bus journey to and from Weymouth for up to seven people. The parking and ride to and from Dorchester is only £1.50.

Buses to Weymouth run every 15 minutes, stopping at the Pier Bandstand, Marks and Spencer and the Pavilion Theatre. All of these stops are only moments from the beach or the centre of town.

The car park is equipped with toilets, a sheltered waiting area, CCTV security and electric charging points for vehicles. If you want to use these, please check the details on the Dorset County Council website.

  1. according to the olympic spokes person for the park and ride take over during the olympic months within the borough of weymouth who was on the west country news on tuesday at 2230 has stated that weymouth has 5, thats 5 park and ride car parks. As hard as I try I simply cannot make the sound "five" when my brain is forming my vocal cords and mouth into making the "one" sound. Where ???? are the other four ????
