The number of people using park and ride services during the 2013 Lincoln Christmas Market was higher than last year's event.
Around 130 coaches were in operation over the four day event, transporting visitors to the market.
Steve Welsby, spokesperson for the City of Lincoln Council, said: "Initial figures indicate that users of the park and ride facility are up by more than eight per cent this year."
John Latham, director of development and environment services at the council, said there had been a positive atmosphere throughout the four day event.
"I think Thursday and Friday's numbers were down a little, maybe because of the weather," he said.
"Saturday was very busy.
"I think the atmosphere this year was fantastic and it was really positive.
"After the severe crowding in 2011 and the one way issues last year, this year will go down as a good one."
