Coventry Park and Ride is a park and ride system, operated under contract to Coventry City Council and Transport for West Midlands, in the English city of Coventry1

The scheme was launched in 1999 to relieve traffic congestion and to provide a cheaper alternative to city centre parking2 The service was jointly operated by Coventry City Council, Centro and Travel de Courcey,23 with Centro and Coventry City Council jointly responsible for the marketing and setting fares Buses shuttled passengers between a large free carpark at Austin Drive, Courthouse Green, to and from the city centre2

In June 2012 Travel de Courcey introduced three electric buses to the route, each with a capacity of 40 passengers This was claimed to be the first use of rapidly rechargeable electric buses in the UK4 Also in 2012 the company rebranded the park and ride buses in a burgundy and cream livery, to gain brand recognition of the service2

In June 2013 it was announced the park and ride scheme would cease3 and the Austin Drive carpark closed Despite a weekly council subsidy of £1,900 the scheme was still making a loss and carrying only 28 passengers per trip, on average2 However, in April 2014, the service was awarded to Stagecoach in Warwickshire who agreed to run it profitably without council subsidy5

Buses run every 20 minutes, between Monday and Friday starting at 6:10 am and finishing at 9:25 pm5
