Spectators are being encouraged to make use of this free Park and Ride service, which will offer regular shuttle buses between the Public Parking Site in Garhoud, next to NI Model School, and the stadium itself.

The Park N’ Ride service will commence two hours before the start of play each day. For the first four days of the women’s week (14th to 17th February) play starts at 12 noon, with the shuttle service starting at 10am. From quarterfinals in the women’s week, the shuttle will state at the later time of 12 noon (with play starting at 2pm) and from 3pm (5pm start) on women’s finals day – Saturday February 20.

For the first five days of the men’s week, play will commence at 2pm, so the shuttle service will run from 12 noon. For men’s finals day, on the February 27, the shuttle will run from 3pm, with play commencing at 5pm.

“We are continuing our Park N’ Ride shuttle service after its success last year,” said Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of tournament owners and organisers, Dubai Duty Free.

“The service offers tennis fans an easy and efficient way of getting to and from the stadium without having to worry about where to park their cars,” he explained.

Tickets for the early rounds of both the men’s and women’s tournaments are still available at the Dubai Tennis Stadium box office and through TimeOut tickets.
