TAXIS & DROP OFF/ PICK UP

It is essential to pre-book your taxi. We recommend www.v-cars.com, www.yellowcabsbristol.co.uk and www.clubcarsbristol.com

Pre-event there is no designated drop-off point at the stadium. Roads near the stadium will be closed, have temporary waiting restrictions or be very busy. Fans will find it much quicker to be dropped at least ½ mile from the stadium and walk from there. Please note parking enforcement and police will be patrolling to keep key roads moving. The A369, A370 and A3029 are fast, busy roads which do not permit waiting and are unsafe to stop on – they should only be crossed at controlled crossing points

Post-event numerous road closures are in force and the roads nearest the stadium are expected to be extremely busy meaning most fans will find it much quicker to pre-arrange pick-up at least half a mile from the stadium. Please ensure your pre-arranged pick-up point is safe to stop. For those wishing to be collected nearer the stadium, Sainsbury’s on Winterstoke Road in the designated pick-up point for private pick-up and pre-booked taxis only. Anyone picking up here must do so in the main car park and keep all surrounding roads and approach roads clear. The car park is expected to be busy and will take some time to clear post-event so please be patient. Police will be positioned locally to ensure all waiting restrictions are enforced and highways kept clear.

Post-event hackney carriages (non-pre booked blue taxis) will be positioned on Ashton Road at a temporary taxi rank (what3words: folds.lined.ties). Please follow lines and join the queue. Please note: Ashton Gate cannot guarantee the availability of hackney carriages. If no taxis are available or there are long queues, we advise fans to walk towards the city centre where more are likely to be positioned.

Disabled visitors requiring assistance with collection can call Ashton Gate on 0117 963 0600 to pre-book our disabled shuttle bus service which will depart from Barons Close and transport people through the road closure to Sainsbury’s where they can be picked-up at the Pick-up point.
