What is park and cycle?

1013DCCycle4A018-3Park and Cycle works in the same way as Park and Ride but with bicycles, and it’s completely free! Simply park your car in the Park and Cycle area, take out your bike and cycle the rest of the way to work. You need a valid annual permit to avoid incurring a penalty charge and your journey must be a regular commute.

There are now Park and Cycle spaces at all Exeter Park and Ride sites. A limited number of lockers for secure bicycle storage are also available at Matford, Sowton and Barnstaple Park and Ride sites.

These lockers are managed and rented by Bikeaway Ltd. and current availability of lockers at each site is listed on their website under the ‘Rent a Locker’ section.

How do I apply for a permit?

Complete the application form below and you will be contacted by a member of our team. We can only supply permits for commuters whose onward journey is outside the exclusion zone for each site. Check the maps before you apply:
