Getting to Bahrain International Circuit

Bahrain International Circuit


    The best way to travel to the circuit is by car as Bahrain does not have an extensive public transport network. Parking at the Bahrain International Circuit is limited and it is essential that parking is booked in advance.

    Spectators are entitled to 1 free parking pass for each 3 grandstand tickets booked i.e.

    • 3 tickets = 1 parking pass
    • 4-6 tickets = 2 parking passes
    • ...and so on

    If you require parking for e-ticket bookings, you will need to collect a parking sticker before heading to the event. In order to do this, you will need to show your e-ticket at one of the Official BIC Outlets, at the City Centre Mall or Seef Mall, or the Ticket Collection Tent near the Sakhir Petrol Station. You will then be issued with a parking sticker.

    Coach & Bus

    Public busses are good for getting around Bahrain and are the primary mode of transport for locals and popular with tourists as they are clean and air conditioned. There are no direct services for the circuit over the race weekend, although shuttle busses may run from main hotels in Bahrain. Check with your hotel to see if there is any service offered.

    Busses mainly operate from bus station on Government Avenue, Manama to urban destinations in Bahrain. Details on timing and routes will be available at the bus station itself.


    Travelling to the circuit by taxi is a possibility, but there may be long queues for taxis after the race has finished. If possible, book your return taxi in advance to avoid long delays.

    We also recommend you to check that the meter is switched on and that your travel fare is agreed with the driver before you start your journey.

    Also, please note that Uber now operates in Bahrain, so it might be worth taking it into consideration.

    Reputable companies include Speedy Motor Taxis (+973 1768 2999) and Arabian Taxi (+973 1746 1746). A taxi from the airport to Manama will cost around 6 BHD which is €15 or £12.
