Park and Ride

UCC Park & Ride

In 1999, UCC became the first University in Ireland to operate its own Park+Ride scheme.

At present, there are three car parks available for UCC P+R:

  • Pouladuff Road (near the N40 South Ring Road, Togher exit)
  • Dennehy's Cross (PCB sports grounds, single shuttle services only)
  • Black Ash (near N40, at Kinsale Rd roundabout, Term time only)

Shuttle buses operate frequent services from the Main Campus (Boole entrance) on College Road and Brookfield (outside gate). In the morning and evening peaks, the service also includes UCC's Lee Maltings Complex on Dyke Parade / Prospect Row (using the bus stop on Dyke Parade/Mardyke St., opposite the Granary Theatre).

Both Pouladuff and Dennehy’s Cross car parks are open all year, while Dennehy's Cross operates during the summer months as a Park & Walk facility only (approx 5 mins walk to Brookfield, 10-15 minutes to Main Campus). Black Ash is linked to UCC only during Term times.

P+R facilities are open to all UCC staff and students (ID spot checks by security staff may occur).  Parking and the use of the shuttle buses are free of charge.
