Olympic Games, Travel and Getting There on Time

The 2012 Olympic Games are set to change the face of London. Getting to the games may turn out to be an Olympian task, so make sure that you plan your travel schedule well ahead of time. Organisers anticipate that the Central and Jubilee lines and DLR will be busiest. Services will begin around 45 minutes earlier and finish up to an hour later to cope with the extra passengers travelling to and from the games. Bus services that run through areas where the games are held will also see changes to their schedules and routes. Make sure that you contact the bus service when planning your travel route.

An alternative form of transport, which will make travel in the Capital much easier during the Olympic Games, is the river service. River services during the games will increase, which will offer patrons another option for getting to the events. As well as which, you will get to travel to the games in style, taking in all the sights and sounds that a Thames river cruise has to offer. Services are run by Thames Clippers and City Cruises ; make sure you will need to book early to ensure your place.

Generally, you should book travel where possible and leave early to make sure you get to the events on time and avoid the last minute crowds. Carry a map of events and locations with you at all times; preferably one that has directions to the nearest bus and train routes. There are also various travel-news sources you can subscribe to via email, text message and smart-phone apps. These will give you the edge with up to date notifications on cancelled, rerouted and congested transport services. To beat the rush, you can also leave events a little earlier so that you can start making your way to your next destination.
