Park and Ride to work poster               park and ride image

Take the stress out of the morning rush to work. Instead of negotiating the city traffic, you can sit back and relax before enjoying a short walk to work leaving you feeling de-stressed and ready for the day ahead.

The Park & Ride runs every 10 to 15 minutes, Mondays to Saturdays, 7am to 7pm.

A day ticket costs £3 per day per person, but you can save more with one of our saver tickets, which are available at £14 for a weekly ticket (equivalent to just £2.80* per day), £26 for a 10-trip ticket (equivalent to just £2.60 per day) and £42 for a 4-weekly ticket (equivalent to £2.10* per day).

The Park & Ride is operated by the city and county councils and is a fast and frequent way to travel from Birstall, Enderby and Meynell’s Gorse to Leicester.

EMTRAINS Rail passengers can check ticket prices for 2014 from today (23 December) at stations, online at eastmidlandstrains.co.uk or through National Rail Enquiries. 

The Chancellor announced in the Autumn Statement on 5 December that the average increase for regulated rail fares, including season tickets, would be 3.1%. This is in line with July’s Retail Price Index (RPI), rather than the previously planned RPI+1%. Following the change, train companies have been resetting the fares valid from 2 January.

East Midlands Trains has confirmed that the average increase across all of its fares will be 2.6%, or an extra 36p on a single journey. This represents the lowest increase in four years.    Fares on around 17% of journeys across the East Midlands Trains network will be frozen in January 2014.

  • Just four days to go until the launch of faster journeys to LondonEMTRAINS small
  • £70m investment in track upgrade to enable trains to run at 125 mph on parts of the route for the first time ever
  • Passengers advised to check new timetable for changes to departure times

Global emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels are set to rise by more than 2% to reach a record high of 36 billion tonnes, according to new figures from the Global Carbon Project.
Co-led by researchers from the Tyndall Centre at the University of East Anglia (UEA), the 2.1% rise projected for 2013 means global emissions from burning fossil fuel are 61% above 1990 levels, the baseline year for the Kyoto Protocol.
Professor Corinne Le Quéré of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia, who led the Global Carbon Budget report, said: "Governments meeting in Warsaw this week need to agree on how to reverse this trend. Emissions must fall substantially and rapidly if we are to limit global climate change to below two degrees. Additional emissions every year cause further warming and climate change."
