It is available for a small charge to travel to and from the station from Broadway as well as to and from the car parks. The service only runs during the operating hours of the park and ride service.

Bikes can be hired on a daily basis for just £10 (or £7 for half a day). All you need to have is proof of identity (passport/driving license or similar) and a £50 refundable deposit. Bike Hire is only open to people over the age of 18.
For an annual registration fee of £50 you can borrow a bike as often as you like. As with the hire scheme all you need to sign up is proof of identity and address. Please note bikes available as part of the loan scheme are different to those used for the daily hire scheme.
