FIRST West of England will be providing Park and Ride services for the England v India one-day international match at Bristol's County Ground on August 25.

The bus firm is also working closely with the county cricket club to raise awareness of the extensive services that already serve the ground, with the 2014 cricket season getting underway this week (April 7).

First will provide high frequency Park and Ride services from two sites (Portway Park and Ride and from the University of the West of England’s Frenchay campus) to help cricket fans to get in and out of the city.

The Bristol County Ground on Nevil Road is also easily accessible by normal bus routes – Nos. 17, 70, 73, 75/76 and 309/310 all run within a five-minute walk of the main entrance.

Paul Matthews, managing director of First West of England, said: "Travelling by bus means you can avoid the hassle of parking yourself – an important consideration now that a number of residents’ parking schemes are in place."
