Buses leave the P+R facilities at the Weseler Straße Mobilstation stop, at Preußenstadion (Hammer Straße) and at Albersloher Weg for the old town at very short intervals every day all year round, in the run-up to Christmas too.
The parking guidance system takes car drivers to the free P+R facility at Albersloher Weg from the Münster-Süd motorway junction. The city bus routes 6 and 8 (subject to fare) then take you into the city centre. If this car park should be full, you can park your car a few hundred metres further on at the Cineplex car park (all-day parking ticket just EUR 4) and buses take you from there into the centre.
The parking guidance system also accompanies car drivers to the parking facilities in the centre and displays where and how many parking spaces are still currently empty. Anyone who would like to get an idea of this before they leave home can use the Münster parking guidance system.
By the way, the number of empty parking spaces can also be seen using the free WBI app.
