2012 Games coach services - Dedicated direct coach services will be provided to a variety of 2012 Games venues from a range of locations outside the M25.

2012 Games park-and-ride - Secure park-and-ride sites will be provided at convenient locations near to a variety of London 2012 venues. There is no spectator parking near any of the venues, so if you wish to drive, book park-and-ride now.
