Taunton' s Park and Ride buses operate from two sites: Taunton Gateway (to the east of the town) and Silk Mills (to the west of the town).

The buses run on a continual loop between the two sites, picking up and dropping off at several stops in the town centre and also at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Taunton Gateway (TA3 5LU) has 850 parking spaces for cars and is perfectly situated for visitors and commuters driving to the town on the M5 motorway or approaching the town from the east. The travel time from Taunton Gateway into the town centre takes approximately 10 minutes, and approximately 19 minutes to the hospital.

Silk Mills (TA1 5AA) has 760 parking spaces for cars and, located on the west of the town, is ideal for drivers coming from West Somerset and for people needing to access Musgrove Park Hospital. The travel time from Silk Mills into the town centre takes approximately 13 minutes, and approximately 7 minutes to the hospital.

The buses run every 15 minutes on weekdays and every 20 minutes on Saturdays.
