Pay just £5 to park all day and catch our shuttle bus to Folkestone and the Harbour. 

The pilot of the new Folkestone Park and Ride service - operated by Stagecoach - will run from the Motis Business Centre in Cheriton near J12 of the M20, CT19 4 QJ.

This service will operate every weekend until October and daily during the summer holidays. 

Shuttle buses will run every 30 minutes between 9am and 6pm to Folkestone Harbour via Folkestone Central Station.

It costs £5 to park all day at the Motis Business Centre in Cheriton for up to 6 people. This fee includes free use of the shuttle bus service and should be paid to the bus driver. Payment can be via cash or card. 

The last shuttle bus to Folkestone from the Motis site will be around 5:30pm and vehicles are required to leave the site by 6:30pm.

This park and ride service is a pilot to assess demand and help alleviate parking congestion in the harbour area during the summer months. The service has been made possible by Welcome Back funding from government.

Passengers from Folkestone Central Station can get the bus to the harbour at a cost of £1.80 for an adult single/£2.70 return with children charged at £0.90/£1.40.
