Transport

Rail Shuttle

Due to government restrictions easing, we are now able to offer a limited rail shuttle service operating between Southampton Airport Parkway Railway Station and The Ageas Bowl for the IT20 on 26th June.

Tickets for the rail shuttle grant both transport to and from the venue, and are £10 per person.

The rail shuttle service will be available to pre-booked ticket-holders only and will run continuously before the match every 20 minutes from 12pm until 2.30pm, before departures from the stadium's Car Park 1 (opposite the West Gate) will begin from 4.30pm for every 20 minutes for those wishing to leave early.

Once the IT20 finishes, the rail shuttles will depart from The Ageas Bowl's Car Park 1 (opposite the West Gate) 30 minutes after the match ends on Saturday 26th June.

Please note that transport plans may change subject to government restrictions and guidelines. Masks are a mandatory requirement to be worn on the buses unless you are exempt. Buses will operate with windows open and will load from the back to reduce passengers crossing over with each other, whilst no standing or rear facing seats will be allowed and buses will be cleaned between every trip.
