Street parking exists around the ground, or alternatively there are a few private matchday car parks situated at local industrial units near the ground, or at The Hawthorns Station.

The closest railway stations are The Hawthorns which is a five-minute walk from the ground, or Smethwick Rolfe Street, which is about a 15-minute walk away. The Hawthorns is served by a Metro service from Birmingham Snow Hill station, whilst Smethwick Rolfe Street is served by local trains from Birmingham New Street. The Metro service takes eight minutes to the Hawthorns from Birmingham Snow Hill and trains run every 15 minutes.
