13) What is your car sharing policy?

We offer free parking to Rail Users at all Chiltern Car Parks, when three or more people share a car.

At least 3 occupants of the car must come to the Ticket Office where staff will record your vehicle registration number and provide free parking.

This offer is subject to the ticket office being open at the time of your arrival at the station and there being an available car parking space.
