What’s happening?

Great news, Garforth station is getting 85 more car parking spaces!

To enable us to increase the number of parking spaces at Garforth to 337, we need to close parts of this car park from 15 July until December 2019. During this period only about half of the usual car parking spaces will be available and there will be no suitable on-street parking nearby. We are, therefore, asking customers to consider alternative ways of getting to the station.

Car share

We want to make the most of our car parking spaces and encourage car sharing. Dedicated spaces will be available for those arriving at the station with two or more people in their car. Do you want to find a car share buddy? Ask your neighbours and colleagues if they need a lift to Garforth station, or take a look at these websites:

Other ways of getting to the station

As the number of car parking spaces will be reduced at the station while the upgrade work takes place, we’re asking customers to consider other ways to getting to the station. Our handy map shows cycling and walking times from the surrounding area, and the location of bus stops.
