 Post subject: Parking in Gloucester
PostPosted: Mon Jan 25, 2010 1:39 pm 
Hi,

I'm trying to find info for the price of an all day commuters parking ticket at Gloucester Rail Station but I cannot find the info anywhere. :? Does anyone know the price and if there are streets near the station that you can park on for free?

Thanks!

Don't know the cost of an all day ticket-but you will find it almost impossible to get free on street parking.There are many commuters using that car park,I have always found it near impossible to get a space after 10am!

Well my husband is a freak and will insist on getting the 5:19 train! :roll: Have actually worked out that it will be cheaper for him to rent a box in London and come home at the weekends so problem, for the moment, solved! :)

Hi Tipsy

At 5am I am pretty sure your hubby would be able to find all day on-street parking within a reasonable distance of the train station.

Honestly? Back in the day when I worked in Gloucester I used to get free on-street parking .... that was getting into town around 8ish in the morning, but I have to admit that was a fair few years ago now! Isn't there anything around Horton Road area .... behind the train station?

I am outraged, what's the world coming to :lol: :lol: :lol:

There is definitely still free on-street parking in Cheltenham as several of my colleagues use it all day, if that's any help Tips!

Welcome to my world, Tipsy!

Though fortunately for the mo DH is able to crash at his sister's during the week. So hoping he doesn't do anything to upset them as we can't afford a rental option would be more a case of living in a box literally, one of those cardboard ones. Certainly wouldn't be conducive to keeping his job, no washing facilities :roll:

So have you moved up this way yet or is this the latest plan up your sleeve?
