With all the excitement and anticipation in the build up to the London 2012 Games, we took the opportunity to ask members of our own team about their travel plans during the Games.

Jess London Jessica, London
I live in East London and I work in Soho. Delays on the central line are my biggest concern so during the Games, I will probably walk most of my journey. I would consider walking to Chancery Lane and then catching the bus to avoid Bank and Liverpool Street station, which are going to be busy hotspots.

Matt from Manchester Matt, Manchester
I live in Castlefield, right by Old Trafford. I know how busy it's going to get during the Games and parking is going to be really tricky so I'm definitely going to leave my car at home on event days and walk.



If you're thinking about doing something differently to make your journeys easier during the Games, we'd like to feature you on our website and Twitter feed @GAOTG. Whether you're planning on walking or cycling part of your journey or working remotely on busy days, email us with your a photo and how you're planning ahead to getaheadofthegames@tfl.gov.uk.

In the meantime, we will be updating our website to offer you more help with planning your travel ahead of London 2012.
