BUSES: The main bus station, which is served by buses from all over the country is ten minutes walk from the ground, but there are three local services which run from here to within two minutes walk of the park. These are the Kilmarnock-Saltcoats, Kilmarnock-Ardrossan and Kilmarnock-Largs routes.

 

TRAINS: Kilmarnock Station is well served by trains from Glasgow and the West Coast, and the station is only 15 minutes walk from the ground.

 

CARS: Car parking is available in the club car park by permit only. Vehicle Entry ONLY from Dundonald Road. Rugby Park is signed as ‘Football Traffic’ from the main A77 Glasgow -Ayr dual carriageway and on internal roads within the town. As you can imagine, on a match day the parking lot can fill up quicker than a poker hall (www.partypoker.com) so make sure you arrive early. The car park assures you a secure space close to the club. Save yourself the time and hassle of finding a parking space outside.

 

ON FOOT: If you are planning to walk to the ground from the town centre, locate the railway station at the  top end of John Finnie Street. Once you have found that walk away from it down John Finnie Street until you reach traffic lights outside the Sheriff Court. Turn right and head up to the next set of lights, passing The Portman Hotel on your left hand side. At the next set of lights turn left and you’ll see the stadium on your right hand side.
