For the first three Sundays in December, all three ‘park and ride’ operations at Enderby, Meynell’s Gorse and Birstall will be open.
The park and ride services are jointly run by the City and County Councils and normally operate Monday to Saturday. They will also operate for the first time on the December 26 and 27, to help bargain hunters visiting the city centre sales.
Buses will leave from the three sites from 10.15am onwards, and the last bus will leave from Leicester at 5.15pm.
On Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, there will be a slightly earlier than usual last return bus from the city centre at 6pm.
The Park & Ride will be closed on Sunday 25th December, Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd January. Normal operation will resume from Tuesday 3rd January 2012.
