Scarborough roads and car parks can get quite busy at the height of the summer season although there should always be parking somewhere even on the busiest occasions. Parking has become a little easier since the introduction of two large car parks on the outskirts of Scarborough which have a Park And Ride Service available for transportation into the town centre.
The daily and continuous Park and Ride service operates throughout the year from two sites. For traffic from the South there is a site close to Eastfield on the outskirts of the town along the road from Filey. For traffic from the West there is a second site on Seamer Road just on the outside of the town. Buses run from both into the town centre and The South Bay. They run approximately every 12 minutes for seven days a week. There are stopping points throughout the town centre.
