Car share dedicated parking spaces

The University of Worcester car-share dedicated car parking spaces are open to all staff and students who are registered users of the university private car sharing scheme. Car-share members are entitled to park in the dedicated car share spaces when they drive to campus with at least one other registered member and have registered a Budi Team on the system.

The dedicated car sharing spaces (denoted by signage and banner display on the fence) are available at St Johns Campus in car park R. All dedicated car share spaces will revert to standard parking after 10:00am Monday to Friday. Dedicated car spaces are not available at weekends.
