Parking and Park & Ride

The park & ride is a great way to get into the city. There are three Park and Ride services, two in Chelmsford (Sandon and Chelmer Valley) and one in Colchester. All these sites offer convenient transport on modern, air conditioned buses, using designated bus lanes into the City and Town Centres, with stops at key locations.

There are over 5000 parking spaces available in Chelmsford's many car parks.


The sites have high-quality terminus buildings with the following facilities:

  • Free and secure parking (1,500 spaces at Sandon, 1003 at Chelmer Valley, 1000 at Colchester)
  • Covered cycle parking facilities for 20 bikes
  • Waiting areas
  • Toilets including disabled facilities
