Shuttle Bus Service

Operating until Thursday 30 June 2022, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals offer outpatients and visitors a free park and ride shuttle service between Preston Business Centre (PBC) and Royal Preston Hospital (RPH).

The 16 seater service runs between 12.15pm – 4.00pm, Monday – Friday, and operates on a continuous circuit between the two sites.

The first service will leave PBC at 12.15pm and the final service aims to leave RPH at 4.00pm.

The pick-up / drop-off point at PBC will be by the Specialist Mobility Rehabilitation Centre entrance off Sharoe Green Lane and the designated pick-up / drop-off point at Royal Preston Hospital will be the on-site bus stop adjacent to the main entrance.

The service will allow the public to park at Preston Business Centre free of charge and get on a direct shuttle to Royal Preston.

We ask that members of public wear a face covering on the minibus at all times, and when the bus is quieter, socially distance where possible.

Please note there is no specialised disabled access onto the minibus and we would encourage blue badge holders to park on site at Royal Preston Hospital as there is normally good availability in one of the 64 disabled bays around the Hospital site, eight of which are on visitor car park B outside the main entrance. The roads around the hospital are getting busier so we would encourage all visitors and patients to allow  plenty of time for their journey.

Preston Business Centre is located off Watling Street Road or Sharoe Green Lane (PR2 8DY) and is around one mile from Royal Preston – a five minute shuttle.

The shuttle service is being provided by Millers Taxis .

Full visiting details are available here .

Please note that parking charges remain in place for those parking on site at Royal Preston Hospital.
