Shuttle service to link hospital to central city

Wednesday, June 20, 2018   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: health, services, parking

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 20th June 2018

People heading to Christchurch Hospital will be able to take advantage of a new shuttle service from Monday 2nd July.

The Canterbury District Health Board’s popular hospital shuttle pick-up location will shift the Deans Avenue car park to Christchurch City Council’s Lichfield Street Car Park building (33 Lichfield Street).

"We set up our original hospital shuttle service back in October 2014 as a temporary stop-gap to ease our hospital parking problems, and we’ve transported nearly one million passengers since then," says Canterbury DHB Chief Executive David Meates.

“We know that parking at the hospital is still very difficult and will remain so until a replacement for the old blue public car park is built. Until that time we will continue to run a hospital shuttle to and from the Lichfield Street Car Park building to ensure that people get to their hospital appointments on time.

"I’m very pleased to announce this great improvement in our service – our thanks to the Council for the opportunity and for working with us towards this solution," Mr Meates says.

Christchurch City Council Chief Executive Dr Karleen Edwards says the new parking arrangement makes perfect sense and she is pleased the Council has been able to assist the Canterbury DHB with its parking issues.

Find out more about the shuttle and parking at Christchurch Hospital or call 0800 555 300.

It’s roughly a 10-minute walk from Lichfield Street Car Park building to the hospital - if you prefer to walk. The best route is along Tuam Street while roadworks are going on.

How to catch the hospital shuttle

The shuttle service is easy to use. Drive in at 33 Lichfield Street, take a ticket, park anywhere there’s a space, and catch a ride to Christchurch Hospital from the waiting area on Level 2A.

The shuttle will bring you back to Level 2A after your appointment.

Pay before you return to your car, and drive out.

The parking building has lifts and stairs between all floors. The pay station on the ground floor takes cash and cards or use the pay station on Level 2A for cards only.
