There are lots of advantages to booking your travel early – you can secure the best ticket prices and options before they run out, make sure you get to your event on time, and then relax in the build-up to the Games knowing all your travel is sorted out.
London 2012 has teamed up with transport operators to enable ticket holders to book their travel even earlier than usual, with a wide choice of transport options available. But tickets are limited – so if you haven’t yet, book now to make sure you can get to your event.
2012 Games park-and-ride – Secure park-and-ride sites are being provided at convenient locations close to a variety of London 2012 venues.
2012 Games coach services – Dedicated direct coach services will be provided to a number of venues from a range of locations across the South of England.
