As part of the West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund, a package of car park extensions at rail stations has been identified to enhance connectivity to, from and within West Yorkshire. The purpose of the programme is to increase car parking capacity at selected stations. It will deliver more localised benefits as a result of improved access to the rail network.

The package is designed to support sustainable employment growth in the main urban centres and will particularly benefit commuters, but also support more travel into and between the urban centres by rail for other purposes.

The programme has been split in to several delivery phases:
