Customers using Greater Anglia trains can now view current car park availability ahead of their visit.

While parking your car is often just a small part of the journey, the network has pledged to make this as seamless as possible with the new “live occupancy” updates.

We know customers who drive to stations want to be able to park as quickly and easily as possible, which is why we’re committed to improving parking across the Greater Anglia network, making life a little easier for our customers.

– Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia's Asset Management Director

The new service is the latest in a series of car park improvements. Recent work has also been undertaken at 20 station car parks to make improvements to lighting, surfaces, and CCTV.

At the moment travellers can use the live updates at 14 stations across the region, and are also able to check expected car park occupancy for any given time or date.

The network are continuing to expand the service, with stations at Bishop’s Stortford, Manningtree and Witham next on the list.

All new live updates and a full list of participating stations can be accessed via the Greater Anglia website.
