    Dartmouth Park and Ride

    South Hams District Council working in partnership with First Devon and Cornwall operates the bus service which comes into the car park to collect and drop off passengers. The service runs from the car park just outside Dartmouth on the A3122, where it joins with the A379 by Lidls supermarket, to Dartmouth town centre.


    Tickets can be obtained from the pay and display machines in the car parks or through the cashless ringo service. The tickets are in two parts: one to show the bus driver; and one must be displayed on the car. Where a ticket is purchased through ringo, a text will be sent to your phone to enable you to show the bus driver that a ticket has been purchased.  The driver will issue a zero value return ticket to everyone that boards the bus, this must be shown to the driver for the return journey.

    • Dogs are permitted on the Park and Ride bus
    • All day tickets cost £5.00 or £3.00 after 2pm


    Times of Service

    Dartmouth Regatta

    During Dartmouth Regatta in the last week of August, overflow fields are in operation to cope with the increase in traffic. There is an extended park and ride service during this period and the charge is £10 per vehicle.
