Shuttle bus service for Abbey Headland, Whitby

Wednesday, 10 April 2019

A new, free shuttle bus service will begin operating in Whitby from Monday 15 April to transport people that park in the town’s Abbey Headland car park to and from the town centre.

We are anticipating more people will use Abbey Headland car park this year due to planned major engineering projects limiting spaces available at some of the town’s other car parks. While the car park is still within walking distance of the town centre, we are providing the service for those that are unable to walk or would prefer to ‘park and ride’.

The 30 seater shuttle bus service will operate every day from 15 April to 2 September inclusive. The bus will depart from the car park to the town centre, via Green Lane and Church Street, every 30 minutes from 10am, with the last bus departing at 6.30pm. Passengers will be dropped off on Langborne Road, which is also where the return service will start, operating every 30 minutes from 10.15am, with the last bus departing at 6.45pm.

The shuttle bus service will be operated on our behalf by Esk Valley Coaches. The service is unconnected to North Yorkshire County Council’s Park and Ride service situated on the A171 Guisborough Road, west of Whitby.
