here's the easy way into Cardiff by car

Cardiff is a terrific city, whether you work there most days, pop in for shopping or like to take advantage of all the great events the city hosts.

St David's

But more and more cars clogging up the city centre streets can spoil the very place we’ve come in to enjoy. So, use park & ride at Cardiff East (CF23 8HH).

It makes a lot of sense - plenty of room to park and it only costs £4* if there is one person in a car or £5* if 2 or more people are in the car. The shuttle buses will whisk you in to the city centre in about 18 minutes every 15 minutes.

They drop you off and pick you up again right in the heart of the city centre – what could be easier?

A car sharing facility has also been introduced. For more information please click here

The site is closed and locked after the last bus has arrived.

* £10 fare applies on event days (see 'Event Days' below)
