Park and Ride simply means driving some of the way to your intended destination, such as your workplace, a stadium or park for a public event, then parking up the car and riding the rest of the way, on bus, coach or rail. It can be particularly good for people that live a long way from their intended destination and want to avoid traffic congestion and car parking charges. It has the added benefit of reducing congestion and making it safer around a stadium during a big game, or outside a workplace before or after working hours.
