If you’re travelling by car, getting to Etihad Arena couldn’t be easier. Simply pin our location into your maps app and drive over. Whether travelling from Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Abu Dhabi International Airport, the main highway signage will also help direct you to Yas Island and Yas Bay.
If you’re visiting from outside the UAE, your easiest option is to land in Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) located just a 7 minute drive from the Arena. Downtown Abu Dhabi (25 minutes) and Dubai (45 minutes) are also close by.
If you’d like to rent a car, the airport has plenty of options for you. All car rental offices operate 24/7.
Getting around Abu Dhabi is easy, and taxis are reasonably priced and plentiful. They can be booked by phone through the Trans AD hotline 600 535353 or via the Abu Dhabi Taxi app available for both iOS and Android phones. There will be a dedicated taxi rank close to the arena.
Once at Etihad Arena, ask your driver to follow the signage to drop you at the dedicated Taxi drop off area.
By bus from Abu Dhabi: If you're opting to travel by bus, take the 190 Bus Route to Yas Island via the Abu Dhabi Bus Station next to Al Wahda Mall.
By bus from Dubai: Head to the Dubai Al Ghubaiba Bus Station for transport to the Abu Dhabi Bus Station. Next, take the 190 Bus Route to Yas Island.
Note: if a few of you are travelling together then a taxi may be just as cost effective as the bus.
