Hey everybody, I'm thinking of giving the park and ride scheme a shot on an adhoc basis. Have any of you tried it? What's your experience like? How early do you reach the carpark and is it difficult to get lots (since it's first come first served)?

I'm going to be working at raffles place for a couple of months and plan to park my car either at the park and ride carpark near buona vista MRT or near queenstown MRT at about 8.15-8.25am in the morn before taking MRT to raffles place.

i am on park and ride, and i've parked at bouna vista carpark before for 1 mth.
1) carpark is super far, walk is 10 mins at least to and from mrt.
2) not very difficult to find lots, normally can park 1 level up.
3) traffic over there is generally bad. as need to pass through clementi. AYE going city/west also always jam. be careful of bus lanes as well because always got enforcer.

My home carpark is under park and ride scheme. (I don't want to reveal which one)
The first 4 decks are red. White ones for adhoc park and ride are from 5th deck upwards. I think my MSCP has a total of 10 or 12 decks. I am not sure if season park and ride scheme can park in red lots, but usually the red lots are half empty during 9 to 5.
I usually drive off for work around 745am and the first few white decks will be full due to park and riders filling in. Normally in the middle of the day, the whole upper decks will be full except the top 2 decks which are unsheltered. Just sharing my observation.

No problem for the P&R carkpark near Queenstown MRT. There is plenty of car park lots available, so no need to go early whatsoever.

There are 2 P&R carparks at Queenstown. Blk 148A Mei Ling St or Blk53A Strathmore Ave? Which one do you recommend/referring to?

Delta Circle Fringe Carpark at Alexandra Road
Car Park Number: D0028

Yup, but I feel that the jam I would encounter all the way to Tiong Bahru would be slower than if I had taken MRT throughout instead. So I'm currently considering between the 2 queenstown P&R carparks.

I park and ride at queenstown area before at blk148A. Not too far and have good shelter walkway to MRT too. Blk 53A should be new as I don't remember seeing it before.

I have seen a variation of the park & ride scheme. Guys drive to Marina Barrage for the free parking. And then take out of the boot their foldie bike and ride into work.

Last time when i was stationed at Tanjong Pagar. I tried to get Park&Ride at Bishan it was really hard as it sold out quite fast. End up i got the one at Blk 925 Yishun.

 

If you don't mind you can get the one at Yio Chu Kang but its open air car park.
