St James' Park in Newcastle is hosting nine Olympic football matches between July 26 and August 4. The advice is to leave your car outside the city centre.

  • Extra buses and Metro services will run into the city centre on match days
  • Two bus park and ride services have been set up for the duration of the Olympic football. You can park at either the Metro Centre coach park or Newcastle Great Park
  • Most of the usual Metro park and ride car parks will be free
  • Allow plenty of time to get into the stadium as there will be security checks on your way in
