Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to get to GC2018 competition events? What are my travel options?

Spectators will have a range of travel options available to them to get to GC2018 competition venues.

Walking and cycling will be the best way to get to most competition venues.

Free public transport* is included with your ticket so travelling by local bus, G:Link light rail and train will also be great options for spectators to get to their events.

During GC2018 dedicated shuttle buses will run from key transport hubs and 13 temporary park ‘n’ rides to connect spectators to competition venues.

Taxi stands and passenger pick up and drop off designated areas will be in venue precincts for spectators.

When will I get more information about my travel options to GC2018 competition events?

A GC2018 Spectator Guide will be provided with your ticket(s) and will include travel options and top tips to help get you to your event(s).

Spectators are also encouraged to use the GC2018 Games Journey Planner to plan their Games journey and maximise their GC2018 experience. The journey planner is currently in development and will be available in early 2018.

Will there be additional public transport services during the Games?

Yes, some services will be enhanced (including improved frequency and/or hours of operations) during the Games. GC2018 dedicated shuttle buses will also run from key transport hubs and 13 temporary park ‘n’ rides to connect spectators to competition venues.

Is public transport to and from the Games included in the ticket price?

Yes, leave the car at home and take advantage of the free travel provided with your ticket.

Please note the free travel provided with your ticket does not include Airtrain services and is only valid for travel on the day of your event.

Can I drive to the events? What if I have accessible needs?

To support security requirements and minimise the risk of congestion, spectator parking will not be provided at venues. However, catering for people with accessibility requirements is an important part of the GC2018 planning and delivery process. Information about accessible travel options will be available through the GC2018 Games Journey Planner in early 2018.

No, park ‘n’ rides will be free for ticketed spectators but will need to be pre-booked.

Can I access any venue from a park ‘n’ ride?

How can I book a park ‘n’ ride space?

The Games Journey Planner will link to the park ‘n’ ride booking system. The journey planner is currently in development and will be released in early 2018.
