Jersey bus park-and-ride scheme trialled

LibertyBus is to trial a park-and-ride scheme this summer to encourage Jersey commuters to use buses.

Services to Les Fontaines Car Park in St John are being extended in the morning and evening in the summer timetable, which starts from 27 May.

Parish Constable Phil Rondel has welcomed the move, something he said he had been calling for for years.

Parking in the parish centre was previously limited due to it being used as an unofficial park and ride.

The summer timetable also includes four Sunday services to Bonne Nuit and Bouley Bay, and additional commuter journeys to and from St Ouen's Village on services eight and nine.

The company has asked anyone with comments on the changes to contact it before 3 May.
