Discounted tickets for Oxpens Car Park


Discounted tickets for Oxpens Car Park

Oxford City Council is dropping the price of pre-purchased all-day parking permits at the Oxpens car park to just £6.

The discounted tickets, which must be bought online in advance, are available from Monday to Friday and will be valid from midnight to 11.59pm.

The offer starts on 11 July and will run until the opening of the new Westgate shopping centre in 2017

Councillor Alex Hollingsworth, Oxford City Council Executive Board Member for Transport, said: “While the Westgate shopping centre redevelopment is taking place shoppers and visitors to the city are tending to use the Gloucester Green and Worcester Street car parks and on-street parking on the north side of the city centre, so there is some spare capacity during weekdays at Oxpens. Oxpens car park is open 24 hours a day, has public toilets and is well lit, and we are keen to make sure that this excellent public facility is widely used.”

Car security is enhanced by the on-site CCTV cameras and the security officers who patrol throughout the day. Staff are also on site between 8am and 6pm every day to help customers.

Parking charges will remain unchanged at the City Council’s other city centre car parks.

Oxford has five Park and Ride sites around the city. The City Council runs Redbridge, Seacourt and Pear Tree, which offer all-day parking for just £2 and frequent buses into the city.

Earlier this year the Council opened securing bike parking facilities at Redbridge and Seacourt Park and Rides. This allows people to park their bikes overnight, or drive to the park and rides and commute into the city for just £2.
