BBC RADIO 1’s BIG WEEKEND: TRANSPORT UPDATE

Ticket holders for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend are required to purchase a ticket for the official Shuttle Bus/Park & Ride services to get to the event site. This is to ensure that all ticket holders can get to and from the event site as safely and smoothly as possible and reduce congestion in the local area.

For safety reasons it will not be possible to walk to the event site. There are also no public parking facilities available in and around the event site area and traffic management restrictions will be in place. If you breach traffic management restrictions, your vehicle may be towed.

Please do not try and drive to the event – there will be no public car parking available on site or in the local area. Some roads in the local area will be closed, or have restricted access, meaning it will not be possible for people to be dropped off close to the site.

For the latest information about road closures please download the BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend Road Closures Map (.pdf).

CAN I GET A TAXI?

There will only be a limited drop-off point at the event for licensed taxis and private hire vehicles and we understand that many local taxi firms are choosing not to take bookings due to the traffic restrictions, which will increase journey times. We are advising that taxi and private hire vehicles drop ticket holders at Shuttle bus locations, from where they can board bus services

We are in contact with all taxi and private hire vehicles operators in Hull and the East Riding and have asked them to let us know if they have taken bookings, providing time of booking, number of passengers, make, model and registration of vehicle. This will enable us to plan transport operations and offer advice about road closures, which will affect taxi journey times.

If you plan to travel by taxi from outside Hull or the East Riding, please ask your taxi operator to contact us at theteam@hull2017.co.uk.

During busy periods (9am – 2pm and 9pm – midnight) there will be a large number of shuttle buses on the routes and taxi journeys will take longer than usual.

Please do not contact us regarding individual taxi bookings as we will unable to help. You will need to contact the relevant taxi company.
