Public transport to the venue


The venue is a 7 minute walk from the 'Wharfside' tram stop on the Trafford Park Line (Red Line). With trams every 12 minutes, the new Metrolink line will give you fast and frequent transport links to and from the city centre. The 'Old Trafford' tram stop goes to a different stadium (the cricket ground) around a 19 minute walk away, though it does have step free access.


Bus routes can be planned on the Manchester bus journey planner: tfgm.com/public-transport


There is a public cycle hire scheme here: beeactive.tfgm.com/cycle-hire. And bike racks are available at the venue if taking your own bike.

There is a full range of transport information listed on the Old Trafford website, here:

Lift sharing with other delegates

Liftshare.com is a way that Convention delegates can share the journey, saving on petrol in the process. As well as being more environmentally friendly, it is also much cheaper. To use this website:

  • Register and it will ask you to add your journey details (your destination postcode is M16 0RA)
  • You're then asked whether you are driving or would like to be a passenger
  • Add an expected departure time of the journeys, although the precise details could be agreed by you and your fellow traveller later on
  • On the 'journey schedule' page there is a link with 'additional options'. Click this and write a comment that you are travelling to the GeoPlace Conference, and this will help you to identify other conference delegates.
  • Post your journey and look through matches.
  • Choose a match, and you can ask them for more information or to lift share.

Good luck on your adventure!


There is ample car parking at the venue, in section E2 on the map below
