The CPT is launching a survey on coach parking within London next year during the Olympic Games, and how this will affect those planning to operate ‘non-Olympic’ services within the city.

The body is working in conjunction with Transport for London to address any resultant shortfall of coach parking in central London. Demand for parking next year is naturally expected to be as high as ever, if not higher, with additional traffic from tourists as well as non-Olympic visitors arriving in high numbers by coach.

Existing parking space for coaches is expected to be affected by the operation of the Olympic Route Network. The CPT is asking operators to take a small amount of time to respond to a ‘tick box’ survey, including those who have yet to finalise their 2012 operational plans.

The data provided will allow the CPT to make the appropriate provision for parking spaces. The survey closes on Friday, November 4, and operators are being asked to ensure that responses are completed before this date.
