A vision for Wallyford Park & Ride

The Wallyford Park and Ride site has the potential to become a hub for sustainable transport journeys within and beyond East Lothian. Prior to changes in working practices caused by the pandemic, the car park was nearing capacity, but it is much emptier now, and we have taken this opportunity to envision how it might look different in future.

In time, we would like to see:

  • better connections for walking and cycling
  • more opportunities for vehicle charging, particularly buses
  • additional facilites such as a covered waiting area, toilets and a kiosk
  • bike hire stations
  • comprehensive information provision

Investing in a Journey Hub here, by building on the exisiting facilities, could:

  • raise the profile of public transport and other options for sustainable travel
  • support Demand Responsive Transport by providing a visible network “gateway”
  • support people to move away from single car journeys
  • increase opportunities for people who don’t drive
