Derby County Football Club has been working with Derby City Council, Derbyshire Constabulary, local transport operators and Derby County supporters to review the travel options for people coming to Pride Park Stadium, in order to develop a Travel Plan for the club.
Why does DCFC need a Travel Plan and what will it achieve?
The club is adopting a Travel Plan to limit the impact of Derby County home games, and other events held at the stadium, on the local area.
The Travel Plan sets out a series of actions that the club and its partners will deliver over five years.
It aims to:
- Improve supporters’ travel options, with a focus on walking; cycling; public transport and car-sharing, to reduce the number of cars arriving at the stadium and surrounding areas on matchdays.
- Update matchday traffic management arrangements to improve safety on the roads around the iPro and move home supporter coach parking closer to the stadium.
- Improve the management of matchday car parking on Pride Park to minimise traffic congestion and speed up departure from the ground.
