The Park and Ride

A bus service across Taunton that helps you beat the traffic.

You can catch it anywhere on its route – you don’t need to ‘Park and Ride’ to use it.

Fares are just £1 per journey.

The Park and Ride runs from two sites.
Taunton Gateway – on the east of the town
Silk Mills – on the west

The buses run on a loop between the two sites, picking up and dropping off at several stops in the town centre and at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Taunton Gateway (TA3 5LU) has 850 car parking spaces and is near M5 Junction 25. It’s about 10 minutes from the town centre, and about 19 minutes from the hospital.

Silk Mills (TA1 5AA) has 760 car parking spaces and is handy for drivers coming from West Somerset and for people who need to get to Musgrove Park Hospital – about 7 minutes away. The town centre is about 13 minutes away.
