Don’t forget to claim your free Park and Ride tickets

The deadline to claim two free Park and Ride tickets being offered by Portsmouth City Council is approaching. You can claim your tickets using this form by Monday 25 February.

For many who drive to work, parking can be an issue and so employees of the University are being offered the chance to try the Park and Ride for free to see if the scheme could work for them. Each ticket is per vehicle, meaning a total of five people per ticket could potentially benefit from using the Park and Ride.

Tickets will be delivered to you at the university address you provide on the form, and can be used any time – including weekends – during March 2019.

Info about smartcard products

Park & Ride smartcards allow commuters to purchase either 10, 20 or 50 days of travel, for a fraction of the daily turn up and pay cost. A daily Park & Ride ticket costs £4, but purchasing travel through a smartcard allows you to make significant savings. If you were to purchase the Flexipass 20 a daily trip would cost you just £2.50. While a Flexipass 50 reduces the daily cost to just £2 – significantly less than city centre car parks. Over 50 days of using a Flexipass 50 you would save £100 on the turn up and pay price of the P&R.
