York Station Frontage Illustrative Master plan

The master plan makes arriving and using the station simpler for pedestrians, cyclists, buses, taxis and drop-offs and people using long and short stay parking; it prioritises pedestrian and cyclist routes and creates new public spaces.

The master plan proposes that:

  • buses and taxis use a transport interchange close to the station entrance
  • short and long stay parking is accessed from a one-way loop road
  • longer term car parking could be combined into a multi-storey car park
  • in the longer term, vacant plots could be developed

Development opportunities described in York Station Front master plan also include:

  • Station Square and new pedestrian crossing
  • refurbished 'Porte-Cochere' (the current taxi rank and drop-off area)
  • a new pedestrianised public space at Tea Room Square
  • new public space below City Wall arches
  • segregated cycle routes
  • short stay car parking (and public pick-up)
  • station refuse collection areas
