Save-a-Space and NWM

Save-a-Space is working with NWM on the development of a parking app which will allow users to find and book parking spaces in advance at 6 participating NWM train station Park and Ride car parks. View live train departures and pre-bookable parking availability information within the free app.

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity of taking part in trialling this exciting new service. Once you have registered your details you will receive a confirmation email and further information explaining the next step in the trial process. Due to high level interest, we invite each user onto the trial personally. Once selected you will also receive a list of FAQs, which should answer any queries you may have.

As part of the sign-up process we are asking you to commit to giving feedback to enable us to develop and improve the service for you. All trial participants offering feedback will be entered in to a prize draw for one of five High Street £20 shopping vouchers. We would like to thank you for taking part in the trial and we look forward to hearing about your Save-a-Space experience.
