Motorpoint Arena and National Ice Centre

The Motorpoint Arena and National Ice Centre are located on the eastern-edge of the City Centre and is just a short walk away from the main stops at Victoria Centre and the Old Market Square.

If you want to take the bus, catch Lilac Line 24 25, 27 or Red Line 43 which run frequently between the City Centre and Arena on all days of the week. You want the “Southwell Road” stop when heading to the Arena and buses back pick up from “Hockley”, alongside Bunker’s Hill.


Eventrider is our special ticket that saves you money when travelling to and from the Arena or a Panthers match.

For just £2.50 per person* (instead of £3.70), you can travel to and from your show, match or concert as well as make additional journeys during the daytime.

Simply show your match, show or concert ticket** to the driver and pay £2.50. Remember, our drivers don’t give change, so you need the exact fare. On all the other buses you travel on, just show the Eventrider ticket to the driver as you board.

Once purchased, Eventrider is valid for the rest of the day, so you can enjoy a meal or drink before heading home. Last buses on our core routes are at midnight and you can also travel with an Eventrider on our “N” buses through until 03:15am.

* Valid to Clifton Pastures on South Notts 1; Lowdham (Gonalston Farm) on Lilac Line 26, 26C and Pathfinder 100 and Mapperley Plains (Coppice Road – Spring Lane (Gedling Country Park) on Sky Blue 46, 47.

 ** Your match, show or concert ticket has to be dated for the same day of travel
