We are proud to be able to support and facilitate convenient transport in and out of the Fair for local residents and tourists.

Councillor Dave Craker, Portfolio Holder for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, said: “We would encourage anyone planning to visit the Fair to use the extra services provided by Stagecoach East Midlands which go to and from the Fair right across the city with a Park n Ride service also operating from Priory Park and Humber Bridge carparks. This great family event is always a highlight on the community calendar and we would like to thank Stagecoach for increasing their services to accommodate the Fair.”
