Using your car to get to Groningen? It’s important to note that some areas in Groningen have restricted access or limited parking and it can be very expensive. If you plan to park your car in the city, be sure to check the parking regulations and availability of parking spaces beforehand. There are several parking garages and parking areas available in the city center, and some hotels also offer private parking for their guests.
Efforts are underway to enhance accessibility in Groningen, including road and rail improvements. Stay informed about the current traffic conditions and valuable travel advice at Groningenbereikbaar.nl.
Park and Ride (P+R) Groningen
Parking is free at our P+R (Park & Ride) spots. From there, you can take the bus to the city center.
There are few P+R spots but I’d recommend the following spots:
Arriving from the west
Arriving from the north or east
Arriving from the south or east
P+R Haren/A28, Emmalaan 35.
P+R + using the bus
With a P+R ticket (return) you can travel inexpensively with several people from a P+R site to the center of Groningen. If you are traveling alone, then traveling on balance with your OV-chip card may be more advantageous. The P+R ticket costs 6 euros.
The P+R ticket (€ 6,-) is only for sale at the P+R areas Haren, Hoogkerk, Kardinge, Reitdiep, Meerstad, Leek and P+R Euroborg/P3. You buy the ticket from the driver of the Q-link buses (PIN only) or in the Qbuzz webshop.
In the bus
On the bus you pay your ticket with your debit card. Payment with cash is no longer possible.
