« NewsNottingham BID Teams Up With Nottingham City Council and Car Park and Public Transport Providers to Launch ‘More After 4’ Campaign

 The Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID) has teamed up with Nottingham City Council and public transport providers to launch the More After 4 campaign, a series of parking and transport offers to encourage more people to come into the city centre, particularly after 4pm, and to stay longer so that they can enjoy all that Nottingham has to offer, especially in the run up to Christmas.

With effect from 19 November until and including Boxing Day, the Nottingham BID in conjunction with the City Council is providing discounted on-street parking in the city centre.  People will be able to park after 4pm until 07.59am the next day – up to 16 hours – for just 50p on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays as long as they park in Zones 1, 2 and 3 – the core city centre area, and use the RingGo system to pay, using the code 18906.

Between 16 November and 18 December people will be able to travel into the city centre using Nottingham City Transport’s (NCT) Group Rider ticket for £4.50 for up to two adults and three children after 4pm on weekdays as well as all day from Saturday 19 December until 4 January.

Similarly Nottingham Express Transit (NET) is providing a discounted £5 group ticket for unlimited tram travel for one or two adults and up to three children, or just two adults every weekday after 4pm, as well as all day at weekends and during the school holidays.

“We are really pleased to be working in partnership with Nottingham City Council and public transport offers to provide such great deals,” said Neil Fincham, director of the Nottingham BID.  “People can come into the city centre late afternoon to shop at our great range of national chains and independents and then have dinner at one of the growing number of great restaurants in the city or go to the cinema or theatre or take in a concert.  We hope that lots of people take advantage of these offers and enjoy all that the city has to offer.”

Councillor Nick McDonald, executive member for Jobs, Growth & Transport said:

“These parking and transport offers have been developed by the City Council and the BID to support the retail and leisure businesses in the city centre in the important Christmas trading period.  Reducing their transport costs will help to encourage shoppers and visitors to come into the city centre to shop, eat and drink, and enjoy the festive atmosphere.”

The BID is already providing discounted parking in the car park on Mount Street in conjunction with NCP at their Nottingham City Car Park.  Here drivers can park in the car park on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for just £3.80, providing they park between 11am and 2pm and leave before midnight.

In addition there is free parking after 5pm in the intu Victoria Centre Car Park from Wednesday 25 November to Wednesday 23 December.
