Park for free and catch the train


There have been some suggestions that the new stations along the Borders Railway will have pay and display car parks. This is not the case.

We can assure local residents and commuters that the parking bays provided at the stations will be free along the Borders Railway route. This was an issue which was raised by residents during the parliamentary process and it was agreed at that time that parking at the stations would be free of charge. The stations have been designed, with agreement from Transport Scotland and the local authorities, to offer a balance between providing adequate parking facilities and a central locality within easy walking distance of many potential users.
