Getting around the city during the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix

If you are heading to the 81st Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix this weekend, or will simply be in Monaco, here is everything you need to know to navigate your way around the city.

The circuit closes to vehicles and pedestrians every morning between 6am-7:30am and reopens in the evening between 6pm-9pm, though on-track incidents can delay evening reopening. 

Access to the circuit is provided through 10 entry gates, each designated for specific grandstands. Recommended entrance gates include Gate 1 for Le Rocher (General Admission and the cheapest option), Gate 2 for Grandstands N, O, P, V, etc. For more information, click here: Trackside at Circuit de Monaco – 2024 Monaco Grand Prix –

A tip for the general admission areas is to get there at around 6am to secure your spot as the system works on a first come first serve basis.

Bus schedule

The Autobus de Monaco network will see significant disruptions. Several bus stops will not be served on lines 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, and express lines X1, X2, X3, and X4. For more information, click here: Monaco Bus Company (

For regional transport, Zou!, several lines will also experience changes. Adjustments include Line 600 Monaco/Menton, where stops such as Place d’Armes and Princesse Antoinette will not be served, and Line 80 Monaco/Nice, where several stops, including Spélugues Fairmont and Grimaldi Forum, will also not be included. Lines 603, 604, and 605 will also have changes, with the Place d’Armes stop not being served. For more information about this, click here: My ZOU Bus lines! in the Alpes-Maritimes (

Special shuttles will connect the new Parking des Salines to the circuit to ease the transport of F1 watchers. These shuttles will run every 10 minutes between 8am and 8pm, offering free rides upon presentation of the parking ticket. To access the shuttles’ pedestrian map, scan the QR code below:

Parking des Salines has special rates for Saturday 25th May and Sunday 26th May. Any vehicle that parks before 3pm will only have to pay €20 instead of the usual €25 for three hours of parking.
