Over a million people will be travelling to the West Midlands to not only enjoy the sporting events, but also to see what else the region has to offer. This means there'll be more people on the roads and using public transport.

Transport for West Midlands and its partners have been planning for the Games from the moment they were awarded to our region. The Games Transport Plan sets out the guiding principles which provides guidance and information on the transport arrangements during the Games for residents, businesses and visitors.

Read the Games Transport Plan here.

During the Games, there'll be temporary road and parking restrictions in place. This means that some of your usual routes might be affected, and you may be diverted. 

To make travelling easier and minimise disruption to your journey before, during and after the Games, it is better to plan ahead.


  • The busiest times will be just before and just after events take place - could you plan your travel outside of these times?
  • Leave more time for your journey. If you travel, you’ll need more time for your journey to take account of changes and diversions.
  • For local journeys, avoid the traffic by walking or cycling.
