Getting To The Mem

Rovers Gates

Bristol Rovers Football Club is committed to the development of sustainable forms of transport for both supporters and staff attending The Memorial Stadium, both for work and for leisure.

The Club is fully understanding that the changing of established travel methods will take time, and it is Bristol Rovers' objective to provide the necessary information to ensure all can make informed decisions regarding possible methods of travel.

With this in mind, the Club has developed a new travel plan ahead of the 2024/25 season. This travel plan sets out the targets and development opportunities available to begin the process of a move to more sustainable forms of transportation.

Bristol Rovers Football Club is a proud English Football League Green Club Member and will be working to meet the relevant standards, as supported by the EFL.

Lift Share

If it is not possible to avoid travelling by car to the Memorial Stadium, Bristol Rovers would  encourage car-sharing as much as possible. 

Apps such as LiftShare are available to connect with other supporters travelling to the Memorial Stadium.

Parking

Most supporters will find public transport quicker and easier than driving to The Memorial Stadium, and should be aware that parking in the local vicinity of the ground is often not possible.

Furthermore, parking at the Club itself is not available on matchdays. We would encourage all supporters travelling to the ground to use public transport wherever possible.

Visitors are also reminded that a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) is in operation in central Bristol, with non-compliant vehicles charged between £9-£100 to drive in the area. 

Below is a map of the central Bristol Clean Air Zone.
