Travel by Rail: OPTION 1: Greenock to Glasgow Central and change for train Edinburgh Haymarket then a further change for train to Dunfermline. Please check times as Glasgow Central to Edinburgh service is not frequent.
OPTION 2: Greenock to Glasgow Central. Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Haymarket and change for train to Dunfermline.
The train station is around a 15 to 20 minute walk to the stadium, and all in, the journey will take over two hours. For example, the train leaving Greenock Central at 11.02am will get you in to Dunfermline at 1.50pm.
The away parking can be found off Leys Park Road and this will give direct access to the East Stand, and buses are £7 while cars are £2.
There is no easy alternation for bus parking. Cars uses may find on-street parking difficult. There is some space available on Cemetery Road and this involves a 15-minute walk through the cemetery.
There are car parks in Dunfermline town centre, but, again, this is a 15-minute walk and town centre car parks are likely to be very bust with Christmas shoppers.
