Welcome to Birmingham 2022

This is your one-stop shop containing all the information you need to plan and make the most of your day at the Games.


Plan your Journey

Use the bespoke Games Journey Planner to get the best route to your event. The Journey Planner will recommend a personalised travel plan, and the carbon impact of each option.


  • Walking and cycling could be the quickest way to get to and from your event, it's low carbon and a good active option.
  • All venues have secure cycle parking.
  • No bike? During the Games you can get two free 30 minute cycle hire sessions per day to make it easy to get around the city. For more information visit wmcyclehire.co.uk
  • The UK has an extensive network of long-distance coach services into Birmingham that can get you to the heart of the action. Use the Games Journey Planner to see your options.
  • Travel on public transport within the West Midlands region is included in your ticket on the day of your event, so make good use of it.
  • There is no or limited parking at or around venues so if you need to drive book Park and Ride or Park and Walk for your session.
  • At Park & Ride sites a dedicated shuttle bus will take you to your venue. Search the Journey Planner for more details.
  • Remember - Park & Ride and Park & Walk sites must be booked in advance.

Birmingham 2022 is committed to delivering a COVID-secure Games and remains on track to achieve this.

As the pandemic continued, Birmingham 2022 has been monitoring data at international, national and regional level, and has been learning from other major events that have been recently staged. As a result of this monitoring, COVID-19 mitigation measures have been incorporated into existing planning. Birmingham 2022 will also be flexible , so that additional safety measures can be implemented, if needed.

This position will be constantly reviewed as the Games approaches.

Birmingham 2022 has been supported by external and scientific experts and will continue to work closely with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and the World Health Organisation in the build-up to the Games.

Further details relating to any specific measures that will be implemented at Games time will be shared with spectators over the coming months .
