Access to the stadium by car and park-and-ride

It will be very difficult to get to the stadium by car: all parking lots around the stadium will be closed and reserved for the France 2023 organization on match days. Many streets will also be blocked.

For this, we advise you to park in the parkings relais located on lines 1 and 2 of the metro, then get there by public transport whose amplitude is reinforced.
These park-and-ride facilities are free on match days: La Rose, La Fourragère, Louis Armand, St Just, Gèze, Bougainville, Frais Vallon.

Access for people with reduced mobility

90% of stops on bus lines 19 and 83 meet PRM accessibility standards.

For the World Cup, accessibility work on the St Charles metro station, will be completed, enabling a link with the stadium since the Ste Marguerite Dromel metro station is also accessible.

Also, the currently existing accompaniment service by reservation will be improved by providing trained accompanying staff to help and accompany PRMs.

In addition, the Metropole is also making the Mobimétropole service available exclusively to disabled people with reduced mobility. It operates 7 days a week; advance reservations by telephone are made Monday to Saturday, from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

In nominal mode, reservation requests must be made in advance: between 7 days and 48 hours. A response is sent within 48 hours of receipt of the message and confirmation of transport is made the day before by sms.

For the period, RTM will set up on a simplified reservation procedure enabling French or foreign users to have a rapid response on their pick-up.

Each vehicle is equipped with an access ramp for easy wheelchair access, rail mounting, seat locking, lap belts, rear speakers and air conditioning.
