The UAE's capital will be full to the brim this weekend as motorsport fans - and the country's concert and partygoers - descend on the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

With such high numbers, this could make travel to and from the venue tricky.

Fortunately, plans are in place to make getting around as easy as possible. Here's everything you need to know for getting around:


Public parking is very limited during the F1 weekend. There is some limited parking in Yas Mall, but that is expected to run out very quickly.

If you bought a parking space with your ticket or bought enough tickets to qualify for complimentary parking you should follow the instructions provided to you.


The main way to get from around the city to the circuit is by taxi.

If you're taking public taxis, there are pick-up locations next to the du Arena at the south entrance to Ferrari World and Yas Mall, there are also taxis at the cluster of Yas Plaza Hotels.

Yas Marina Circuit has made special arrangements with Careem. Pre-booked services will wait for you at Red 9, near East Gate.

Yas Marina has a free Circuit Circular shuttle service which takes you around the perimeter of the circuit. The route runs from Yas Waterworld to Yas Plaza Hotels to the South Grandstand to the Marina Grandstand to the West/Main Grandstand to the North Grandstand to the Yas Mall Tryano Entrance to the Yas Mall main entrance.

There is also a Yas Marina Circuit shuttle, which takes to you around the inside of the circuit. This runs from the West Gate to the Main Grandstand to the Yas Kartzone to the East Gate.


Buses are an alternative way to get to Yas Island Marina. Bus routes 170, 180 and 190 will take you to Ferrari World, starting at Zayed Sport City on the main island.

Routes 195, 203, 201, 200, 302, 300 and 304 will also all take you through Yas Island.
