Car parking options available to you
Car parks are available at most of our stations offering daily parking for occasional users and parking season tickets for commuters.
Below, you will find a number of options available to you, including how you want to pay for your parking, the different ticket types and conditions.
We offer a number of ways to pay for your parking ticket, and at busy times (generally before 0900 Monday - Friday) we recommend that you find a parking space before buying your parking ticket:
You can pay with cash or card at our pay and display machines. Cash-only machines dispense tickets for up to three days’ parking. Card machines also provide weekend tickets and weekly season tickets.
Self-service ticket machines accept cash and cards. They can only be used for today's parking.
You can purchase daily, weekend special or season tickets at the ticket office.
RingGo is an app that allows you to pay for parking through your phone. It's currently available at 85 stations. See more on RingGo below.
Use your mobile phone to pay for your parking. It's simple and there's no need for you to display a parking ticket!

We offer a number of parking ticket types to suit you, depending on how often you travel and how long you are staying.
Daily ticket rates can vary depending on time, with peak and off peak pricing, and options for public holidays.
Weekend special parking tickets can be purchased after 1200 on Friday (or from the beginning of off peak hours, if this is earlier). They’re valid until the end of Sunday, (or Monday in the case of bank holidays).
Weekly, monthly and annual season tickets are available at the ticket office, or through our Customer Service Centre when you renew your rail ticket. However, be aware that some stations have waiting lists for new season ticket holders.
Disabled bays are available at a number of stations, to vehicles displaying a valid European Blue Parking Badge. For disabled bays located in premium areas of the car park free parking is available, as well as in short stay (20min or pick-up/set-down) areas of the car park.
For all motorised vehicles with three or more wheels, parking charges apply at train station car parks from Monday–Sunday, unless stated otherwise. Public holidays are charged at the daily rate, including Off peak rates when applicable. Charges do not apply on the 25th and 26th December.
