If you have a Season parking ticket for any TfW station car park, this will remain valid until its current expiry date. You can continue to purchase these from our ticket machines.

Please make sure your paper Season ticket is always displayed when parking in a station car park.

If you’d like to purchase a virtual Season ticket, please visit the APCOA website to register. Remember you’ll need to do this before your current ticket expires.

Car parking restrictions

We’re carrying out infrastructure works across the Wales and borders rail network to revitalise our stations and provide faster, more frequent services that better meet the needs of our customers. 
At some of our stations, there may be fewer parking spaces available as we need to provide access to the railway for our contractors. 
We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes. We’re working hard to complete these works safely, as soon as we can.
Please visit our station pages to find out if any parking restrictions are in place.
