Cricket Park & Ride to operate again on Friday
We have once again teamed up with The Buses of Somerset and Somerset County Council to offer a Park and Ride facility for our NatWest T20 Blast match against Gloucestershire on Friday.
In order to ensure that everyone can get to the match safely and in plenty of time, there will be a number of buses running on Friday from the Taunton Gateway Park and Ride site near Ruishton. In a bid to help reduce traffic congestion this service will operate every 15 minutes at a cost of just £2.40 per person and will drop passengers at Taunton Parade near the Market House. The return journey, which will run from Taunton Parade near the Market House back to Taunton Gateway, will operate every 10 minutes from 20:30 with a last bus at 21:20.
Please note that this service is running from Taunton Gateway Park and Ride site near Ruishton only.
This match is Sold Out and therefore tickets will not be available on the gate.
In another attempt to ease traffic congestion on busy match days we have teamed up with GoCarShare.com.
GoCarShare.com is a website that seeks to match people wanting to go to a particular place with someone who is already driving to that destination. Drivers and passengers post their journeys on the site and passengers then search for suitable people to car share with. They can then apply and/or message the driver.
The driver then lets the passenger know whether they can share with them by accepting them if it suits, or declining them if it doesn’t. They then split the cost of travel and therefore drivers save money on fuel whilst passengers get cheap and convenient travel.
Once the journey is complete, they can leave each other feedback.
GoCarShare is linked with Facebook and therefore customers can find out information about fellow users ahead of the journey.
