One of Dorchester's Park and Ride sites is now free for the rest of the Olympics.

A decision was made by the Olympic Delivery Authority to scrap charges following record crowds into town over the weekend (4th + 5th August 2012).

It had been a struggle to get people on-board last week, originally charging over £10.00 a ride.

Many local businesses blamed the expensive charge on low visitor numbers when the Olympics started.

The Monkey Jump site has spaces for 2,600 cars.

There's no need to book and shuttle buses run every 5 minutes into Weymouth town centre.

Kingston Maurward Park and Ride is closed.

Mount Pleasant  Park and Ride and Preston Beach Road Park and Walk are open and £10 all day. You can still book and also pay on the day.
