Transport to F1 - Trois Ponts area

We are travelling to the Grand Prix this year and are staying in the Trois Ponts area. We've stayed there previously and drove to the track, but everyone would like to drink this year so am looking for other options. I've had a google but can't find much on the public transport front, or we're happy to get taxis. Any help much appreciated!

Trois Ponts is the other end of the 294 bus route that serves the racetrack (or as close to is as they get, which is the stop "Francorchamps - Route de Spa") from Verviers station, see infotec.be/Medeplacer/Horaires/Ligne.aspx…

As you can see, there are 7 stops in Trois-Ponts itself, starting with the station and buses take about 30 minutes to the Route de Spa stop from the starting point.

There's no taxi company in Trois-Ponts itself, but taxi company Christiane Bigare is in nearby Stavelot, tel. 0474/56.38.00 (or from foreign cellphone, +32-474/56.38.00). Or you could ask your hotel or other accommodation for a number.

Has anyone used the 294 bus service over a GP weekend to know it runs? When you drove, where did you park once at th circuit? Doing the GP for the first time and a bit apprehensive about travelling in! Thanks 😀

No, but people have definitely reported getting the bus from Verviers Central, which would have been either the 294 (the OP from over a year ago was travelling in the opposite direction, from Trois-Ponts) or the 395. See for example tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g188655-i2291-k567… (#3).

There are also reports from people who drove to Francorchamps (NOT Spa!) and parked near the track, see e.g. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g230026-i1031-k681… - but you will find many more such reports on F1-related sites, rather than TA.

We've been twice and stayed in Trois Ponts both times. The drive in through Francorchamps has always been quick and easy (caveat, we go early and get to the track not long after 9) and there are lots of places to park along the road into La Source for 10 Euros a day (rue De Pommard according to google), but again, get there early - we got the last place last year!. Enjoy, Spa is a great weekend!
