CPT has teamed up with bus operator Go-Ahead to provide an extra 1000 coach parking spaces in central London this spring.

Starting from Monday 16 May, 30 coach parking spaces will be available to CPT Members each day at Go-Ahead’s Camberwell (20) and Stockwell (10) bus depots for a 6-week trial period (ends Friday 24 June).

The coach parking facilities, which are just a couple of miles from many of the Capital’s key tourist attractions, will be open from 0900 – 1700hrs, Monday to Friday and charged at £35* per day.

Speaking about the 6-week trial, CPT’s Chief Executive, Simon Posner said:

“I am delighted that we have reached an agreement with Go-Ahead to provide CPT Members with an extra 30 coach parking spaces each day in London at a time when other facilities are either being removed or having restrictions placed on them.

“Coach parking and the picking-up and setting-down passengers has long been a contentious issue for operators visiting the Capital, and I hope this announcement goes some way to addressing their concerns whilst also ensuring that coaches can continue to operate in this great city.

“I am confident that a successful 6-week trial will be the catalyst for further initiatives and we will certainly be looking to make the arrangement with Go-Ahead at Camberwell and Stockwell a permanent one. Posner concluded:

“I hope that CPT Members will take advantage of the coach parking spaces on offer and I look forward to receiving their feedback on both the facility provided and the payment and booking system.”

Members wishing to book parking at Go-Ahead’s Camberwell or Stockwell depots can do so by calling the dedicated credit card hotline on

Same day bookings will not be accepted. All payments must be made in advance and operators using the parking facilities must adhere to the terms and conditions set out by Go-Ahead.

CPT hopes that following a successful trial of these new coach parking facilities an online booking and payment system will be introduced in order to make the whole process easier.

*A small administration charge of £1.50 and VAT will be added to all bookings.
