2012 Olympic Games - Coach Parking
Private coaches will only be allowed to pick up and drop off in the designated areas around venues. In all cases a vehicle access permit (one per coach) will need to be obtained and displayed so that your coach can enter the site and allow passengers to disembark at one of the designated drop off points. There is absolutely no question of being able to seek entry on the day. Additionally, coach operators are advised of the very strict parking restrictions that will be in operation in the immediate vicinity of all venues.
Please note that layover parking is not available at every site. Please check the London 2012 contact centre for more information. London Venues: Olympic Park [OPK] Wembley Arena [WEA] Wembley Stadium [WEM] Wimbledon [WIM] Greenwich Park [GRP] Royal Artillery Barracks (Woolwich) [RAB]

If you haven’t registered and wish to purchase a drop off/ pick up slot at the transport hub you should do so immediately. It must be stressed that no guarantee can be given that all requirements are met. (ODA regret that due to capacity constraints they are no longer able to offer any further free parking during layovers at the Barking Bus Centre beyond that already requested.) The cost of coach parking other than the arrangements at Olympic Park is £50 during a twenty-four hour period. The cost of a movement (drop off + pick up) at the Olympic Park is £60. As explained previously that means that if a coach does two separate movements into and out of Olympic Park in the course of a day the cost would be £120 etc (which would entail two drop offs and two pick ups). Obviously all charges are subject to booking fees and VAT. The contact centre number is – 0844 921 2012. The booking website is http://www.firstgroupgamestravel.com
Remaining venue bookings will be uploaded onto the website as soon as possible. You are referred to the contact centre if they are not shown. If there are any further queries on Olympic coach parking issues please contact Mark James at the Olympic Delivery Authority at Mark.James2@London2012.com
