Temple Green Park & Ride

The existing bus-based Temple Green Park & Ride site is being expanded creating up to 391 car park spaces with the potential for an additional bus service to help alleviate congestion and improve journey times into and out of Leeds City Centre.

Project Scope

Temple Green Park & Ride in the Aire Valley is a bus-based ‘Park & Ride’ site with a capacity of 1000 spaces with access from Junction 45 of the M1 motorway. Up to 391 additional car parking spaces will be created and an additional bus service will operate in the peak periods that will alleviate congestion and improve journey times by reducing overall car demand on routes between Leeds City Centre and the east of the city.

Alongside the increase in parking capacity, the proposed scheme involves the operation of an additional bus service during the peak periods to accommodate demand following the site’s expansion.
