The City of York Council (CYC) is looking to appoint an bus operator to operate the city’s Park and Ride service.
The main objective of the Park and Ride service is to reduce congestion in the city centre. This will be principally achieved by encouraging motorists to use the Park and Ride sites and make use of the high quality, frequent bus service. Users may also cycle or walk to, or be dropped off at the sites and then use the bus service. In addition, some users of the car parks may park and cycle into the city centre. The service operator shall promote all of these options when marketing the service and not hinder any user of the Park & Ride sites who wishes to cycle from the sites. At Monks Cross, validation of the car park tokens will be required free of charge for users who park and then cycle to the city centre from the site. A similar form of access restriction may be implemented at other Park & Ride sites during the life of this agreement.

Commercial background to the Park and Ride service:
1) There is a strong focus on reducing emissions and congestion in the city centre and the operator will work with CYC to achieve this aim. From time to time CYC and the Operator will seek and apply for grants to improve the service. Following the award of any grant during the term of the Contract, the Authority is entitled to propose an Authority Change in accordance with Clause 33 of the Contract. The Authority is entitled to propose an Authority Change which, for the purposes of Regulation 72(1) (a) of the Public Contracts Regulation 2015, is within the scope of the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU) Contract Notice relating to this Agreement; is within the scope of this Clause 32 and does not alter the overall nature of this Agreement. The Authority is also entitled to propose an Authority Change under the provisions of Regulations 72(1)(b) (additional works or services), (c) (unforeseen circumstances), (d) (replacement contractor) or (e) (non-substantial modification) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provided the conditions of those Regulations are met.
2) Potential operators should note the following regarding the estimated contract total mentioned on this Contract Notice. The estimated contract value on this form has been entered as £1.00. As an explanation, CYC requires an annual minimum licence fee payment from the operator to CYC for each of the eight years of operation. Income from ticket sales in the last twelve months was approximately £50,000,000. CYC may make payments to the operator following contract changes in order to improve services or provide additional services during the lifetime of the contract. Additionally, CYC may require a higher annual licence fee than the value tendered as new commercial opportunities are exploited with profits split between the operator and CYC. Further information is set out in the ITT documentation.
