The NEC site runs a free convenient shuttle bus service from the East car parks to the Genting Arena on show days. They normally operate from half an hour before Arena doors open time to one hour after the show finishes. All shuttlebuses are wheelchair accessible.
There is no shuttle bus service from the South and West car parks, so we would only advise visitors who are happy to walk to the venue to park here.
