I have a non-standard bike or a bike with a trailer. Will I still be able to make use of the cycle parking facilities?
Yes. Provision has been made for these types of bike.
Procedures will be in place to ensure all bikes are kept as secure as possible. However, Glasgow 2014 cannot accept any responsibility for any theft, loss or damage to property within cycle parking areas.
You will not be allowed to take your bike through the secure perimeter.
I would like to cycle, walk or jog to some of the venues. What facilities are there for me?
Active travel is central to the transport solution for Glasgow 2014.
Walking or cycling could be the quickest way to reach competition venues. Cycle parking will be available at all venues.
Information regarding routes, active travel options and the facilities available at venues will be available in the run up to Games Time.
Local authorities and transport partnerships have invested heavily in infrastructure for walking and cycling. This infrastructure will be the basis for the active travel strategy for
Glasgow 2014 whilst providing benefits after the Games.
I have accessibility requirements – how can I access the games?
Glasgow 2014 is working with external partners and public transport operators to provide seamless accessible transport.
Glasgow 2014’s accessibility plans include a combination of Blue Badge parking at venues, accessible public transport and the provision of assistance, if required.
The Accessible Spectator Access guide will be published in advance of the Games.
Will public transport be available to all venues?
Yes. Public transport will continue to run as close to all venues as possible. In some cases additional services will be available.
While some services will experience route or timetable changes, these will be communicated as early as possible.
Ticket-holders will be able to access selected public transport services at no extra charge at the majority of venues, as local public transport is included in the cost of all tickets.
Will public transport be affected by the Games?
Yes. Diversions will be in place in and around Glasgow during the Games. Up to date information will be available on this website and you are encouraged to check back on a regular basis.
If you are planning to use public transport, you should allow extra time for your journey. Public transport will be extremely busy at some times, so you may find that walking or cycling is quicker.
Remember, there are some events which will be based on roads in and around Glasgow, which will require some roads to be closed for a period of time.
Details about any affected routes or timetables will be communicated well in advance.
