    Sefton Council is delighted to announce a brand new partnership with Southport company Cumfybus to run the town’s Park and Ride service.



    Running from the Esplanade, through the Town Centre and to the Southport Eco Centre, at just £2 per car, the regular 10 minute loop service is incredibly popular with tourists, shoppers and commuters alike.

    Cumfybus will run buses specially equipped with hybrid technology to reduce emissions and compliments Sefton Council’s action plan to help minimise the impact of of air pollution across the borough.



    Cllr John Fairclough, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Locality Services, said: “This is a fantastic partnership with a local Southport company who have hit the ground running and are already offering a great service.

    “The eco friendly busses which run every ten minutes are actively combatting air pollution and helping keep our borough clean, green and beautiful.

    “We are delighted to be working with Cumfybus and we are confident that people who use the facility will be really impressed with its value for money and how quick and efficient the service is.”

    “We would also like to place on record our thanks to Arriva who previously ran our Park and Ride service for many years.”

    Cumfybus Managing Director, Marshall Vickers, added: “As a Southport company it gives me great pleasure to be operating the Park and Ride service in the town and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Sefton Council.

    “To be able to use two of our fleet of Eco-friendly hybrid buses is the icing on the cake.”

    The service runs from 7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 6:30pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

    It would be nice if Comfybus were to consider diverting the bus to the Park and Ride via Ocean Plaza & allowing pensioners to use the bus with their passes to access those shops. A few years ago I went down there quite often but now I am unable to manage such a long walk from the Lord Street bus stops near the Monument.
    Those Park’n’Ride buses seem almost empty much of the time anyway.
