Picking up and dropping off 

Dropping off can be made along Railway Street. You are advised to collect people from an area away from the Arena as it is likely that you will become involved in heavy traffic. For many shows the road at the front of the building, Redheugh Bridge Road, will be closed for pedestrian safety and approach should be made via Pottery Lane from the east, or up Shot Factory Lane from Skinnerburn Road next to the river.

Taxis can pick up on Railway Street/Arena Way before and after events. There is also a taxi rank at Central Station.

For more travel information please visit the Metro Radio Arena website here.


There are over 600 convenient Official Car Park spaces available on site at the rear of the building that offer;

  • CCTV cameras
  • Regular security patrols

Alternatively, when our Car Park is full, we recommend using the NCP Car Park located next to the Arena, with its entrance on Redheugh Bridge Road. Cars with wheelchair patrons can park at the Arena subject to availability on a first come first served basis. Pre-booking is not available.
