MEDIA TRANSPORT

Basic information on the transport of media representatives:

From 4 January to 6 January 2019 shuttle transport will be available from 08:00 to 22:00 to all media representatives between Sheraton Zagreb Hotel and The Westin Zagreb Hotel.

Special shuttle transport for all media representatives from The Westin Zagreb Hotel to the hotel Tomislavov Dom (Sub-Press Centre) atop Sljeme and back will be organised, using organisers’ official vehicles. From there, media representatives will be able to reach the finish area and go back by a three-seat chairlift.
Apart from the abovementioned transport, on the days of the races three special mini buses will be organised exclusively for the photographers to take them from The Westin Zagreb Hotel to the finish area and back.

A detailed schedule of the shuttle transport can be found below.

Media representatives will not be allowed to take their own vehicles to the area where the races will take place, due to the limited parking space on top of Sljeme and in the finish area, as well as due to the special transport system. TV crews and radio commentators are exempt from this rule.

TV crews with broadcast rights (live coverage or footage) and radio commentators reporting on the races from the commentators’ booths will be given permits for stopping and unloading of equipment in the finish area as well as on the parking in the Krumpirište location (1,3 km from the finish area). Shuttle transportation in the official organiser’s vehicles will be organised from Krumpirište to the finish area and back.

All TV and radio commentators without their own vehicles and in need of transportation to the finish area, please report to the Press Office at The Westin Zagreb Hotel by 16:00 on 4 January for the ladies’ race, and by 16:00 on 5 January for the men’s race, so we can secure transportation for them.
The transport of media representatives from the Zagreb Airport to Sheraton Zagreb (20-30 minute ride) and back will be organised at the request of all interested media representatives from 4 January to 7 January 2019. We kindly ask all interested media representatives to email their request for the transport from the airport to Sheraton Zagreb Hotel to [email protected] 48 hours before the arrival at the latest, as well as to sign up at the press office at The Westin Zagreb Hotel for the transport from Sheraton Zagreb Hotel to the airport, not later than 24 hours before the scheduled departure.
