Hop On Board Our Park & Ride to the Soapbox Derby!

As we count down to the Soapbox Derby on June 15th, we are excited to offer our Park & Ride service from the Priory Park & Ride Site, located just off Priory Way in Hessle to Humber Bridge Car Park.

This convenient service ensures you can enjoy the event without worrying about parking hassles. Buses will run every 15 minutes from 9am to 5pm, dropping off at Ferriby Road, providing a smooth and easy journey to the heart of the action!

Fares for the Park & Ride service are capped at £2 per journey, and the best part is that one child under 16 can travel for free with each paying adult. This makes it an affordable and family-friendly way to get to the derby. We strongly encourage attendees to use this service, as parking at the event site is limited and Ferriby Road has double yellow lines, making roadside parking unavailable.
