What Is Doncaster Park And Ride?
Park and ride services are a concept where you leave your vehicle in a car park before completing the final leg of your journey via shuttle bus. This is a popular solution for many venues where car parking facilities cannot satisfy the demand. These can include music and sporting arenas as well as airports.
The idea isn’t too dissimilar to getting bus services from town centres or train stations. Only, with park and ride, you actively drive most of the way rather than reach the pick-up point via other transport modes.
Park And Ride At DSA
Doncaster Sheffield Airport has four on-site car parks that are each operated directly by the airport. They each boast CCTV and great security, as well as competitive pricing. However, the airport has grown since becoming a passenger one in 2005. During busy periods, those on-site facilities aren’t enough to satisfy the demand.
While not technically not a park and ride service per se, staying at the Ramada Encore hotel and getting a bus over to the terminal is a close option. Despite a lack of Doncaster park and ride services for non-hotel guests operated by the airport, there is a third-party service available.
Doncaster Blue Sky Park and Ride is located just 1.5 miles from the airport, and offers free buses to the terminal as part of the package. The car park boasts the same high levels of security and has the same certification from Parks Marks.
Reasons To Choose Doncaster Park and Ride Airport Parking
There are three main reasons people choose this type of parking, although the list of secondary reasons is far longer. Those chief incentives are:
A week stay can be booked for just £29.99, which is the same price as one night’s stay with the on-site parking.
While you lose the blessing of being parked just seconds from the terminal, the bus service takes you right there.
Getting out of Doncaster airport isn’t overly difficult anyway. Still, driving away from Blue Sky’s parking lot can be even simpler.
What To Expect
When you arrive at Quarry Lane, simply sign in at reception and pass your keys to the valet. The only thing left to do is get on the free bus to the terminal and think about getting on the plane!
Upon your return, phone the staff from the airport and they’ll have your car waiting for you once you’ve taken the free bus back to the Blue Sky reception. It really is that simple.
