The new residents' permit scheme has made parking in the vicinity of our Moor Lane ground more difficult on match-days. Salford City F.C. has responded by reaching an agreement to use a local company IT Lab's car-park as as the base for a park-and-ride scheme.
This new scheme will operate for the first time on Monday 28th August for our home game versus Southport (kick-off 3pm) and then for every home first team game until further notice.
The gates for IT Lab's car park will be opened at 1pm (6pm for evening kick-offs). From 1:15pm to approximately 2:45pm (6:15pm to 7:30pm for evening kick-offs) a minibus shuttle service will operate between the car park and our Moor Lane turnstile. The shuttle service will commence again at 5pm (9:40pm for evening kick-offs), taking supporters back to the car park until it closes at 6:30pm (about 10:30pm for evening kick-offs).
There will be a £2 charge per vehicle on the car park and all money raised will be donated to the 'Maggies' cancer charity based at Christie's Hospital. There will be no charge for the minibus shuttle service.
IT Lab are based here...
Please note that car-parking spaces at IT Lab are unreserved and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are approximately 120 spaces available for match-day use.
Supporters are welcome to use the car park and then walk to the ground. It's a walk of approximately three-quarters of a mile and should take about 15 to 20 minutes.
From the car park, turn left onto Agecroft Road and cross the bridge before turning right onto Kersal Vale Road. At the roundabout, turn left onto Moor Lane. Please be aware that the incline on Moor Lane is quite steep and may not be suitable for persons with mobility or health issues.
Salford City F.C. would like to thank IT Labs for their co-operation - find our more about them and the services they offer here.
