Nelspruit’s World Cup travel plans


The Mbombela Stadium will not provide public parking for general spectators on match days and entry will be strictly enforced by law enforcement officials.

The transport system is an additional service to the regular day-to-day public transport system already in place. It comprises a public transport hub, six park-and-ride points and one park-and-walk point, all with free and secure parking, as well as an airport pickup point.

Shuttle services to the stadium, Fan Fest and public transport hub will be operational from the park-and-ride and airport pickup points.

Some 600 branded buses and minibus taxis would provide the shuttle services, with a number of primary and alternative routes that had been developed to ensure the system runs smoothly and traffic congestion is kept to a minimum.

The transport venues will open three hours before the first match of the day and close two hours after the last match of the day. Shuttle services will run every 20 minutes, depending on demand, and will be free from June 11 to 25. Thereafter a nominal fee will be charged.

About 650 transport volunteers have received training and will be on hand to assist spectators using the transport system at all the transport venues.

Event-specific signage will be installed throughout the host city to guide the public to dedicated transport venues.
