World Cup guide to transport

 

Fans attending World Cup matches need to have a clear idea of how they are going to get to the stadium, and back. Find out all you need to know here.

 

It's important to note that no private cars will be allowed into the stadium precincts, and only people with valid 2010 World Cup tickets for that match day will be admitted into the immediate surrounding areas of the stadiums. The following modes of transport will aid 2010 World Cup ticket holders in getting to the World Cup stadiums:

  • Train - including extended rail services over the World Cup
  • Bus - focusing on serving the stadium and city stadium
  • Airport transfer - providing a link to city centres, with onward travel by public transport
  • Gautrain (Johannesburg only) - airport to Sandton link will be operational from 8 June
  • Park and walk - select parking zones will be available for fans to park and walk to the stadium
  • Park and ride - to the stadium, enabling fans to park and catch a special bus or train to the World Cup stadium
  • BRT (Johannesburg) - the Rea Vaya bus rapid transit will be operating special World Cup stadium routes for the games
  • Meter taxi and vehicle rentals - fans have the option of chartering their own modes of transport to get to the World Cup games

 

Approaching the stadium by public transport shuttles and by pedestrian access will be actively promoted, whilst heavy restrictions will be placed on arriving in private vehicles. Each stadium has a vehicle-free, pedestrian-only zone with the closest private vehicle parking areas normally located at least 2-3km from the stadium.

 

During the 2010 Fifa World Cup you can only access the stadium by private vehicle through the Park and Ride facility, or the designated Park and Walk sites, or if you have a parking pass issued with your hospitality match ticket. Unless you are planning to go to the stadium with a ticket for the match, try to avoid the stadium roads.

 

Each World Cup host city is responsible for the transport plans and communications around these plans for fans wanting to get to the city stadium.
