City's Sky Bet League One campaign continues this evening as the Bantams travel 172 miles to face Luton Town (7.45pm).
For those who are making the journey this evening, we have put together the following matchday guide:
1 Maple Road
Kenilworth Road has been home to Luton Town since 1905 when they left Dunstable Road.
As one of the oldest stadiums in football, Kenilworth Road has a reputation of being a unique place to come as a visiting supporter.
With the away end (Oak Road End) packed tightly into the neighbouring residential houses, proximity to home supporters and the traditional stands.
Kenilworth Road has the capacity of 10,356.
Supporters wishing to travel to Kenilworth Road this evening will NOT be able to pay on the gate.
Any tickets purchased over the phone will be ready for collection at the Oak Road turnstiles.
PRICES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Seniors (65 and over)
Golden Seniors (75 and over)
Young Adults (under-22s)
Ambulant disabled fans will pay one category lower than their normal price, (for example, Adults pay £13.00, Seniors £10).
Disabled fans will be permitted a carer free of charge provided they are in receipt of DLA or PIP at the mid or higher rate.
There are five wheelchair spaces available, wheelchair fans will need to contact Luton Town's ticket office directly on 01582 416976 to book tickets.
The nearest station is Luton station (in Station Road, Luton LU1 2LT) on the Midland line, operated by ThamesLink.
From the station, the ground is a 15-20 minute walk. We recommend you take advantage of the free buses to / from the ground that the Police are offering (from 2015) for away fans.
Alternatively, from the Bus Interchange opposite the station, take the “Luton - Dunstable Busway” which stops outside the ground (close to Oak Road stadium entrances). Busway routes A,B,C or F70 to the Clifton Road stop.
(There are also local stations at Leagrave, and the Luton Airport Parkway with connecting bus routes)
Exit the M1 at Junction 11, proceed along A505 dual carriageway. After 1 mile, take 2nd exit at roundabout, then straight across 2 sets of traffic lights and down the hill. Follow signs to the Town Centre / Station.
Street parking near the ground is very limited. We recommend you park at or near the main train station (as above). Other car parking options are available below.
NB. Oak Road itself is closed to traffic on matchdays apart from licensed away supporter coaches.
London- Luton airport is 2 miles from Junction 10A of the M1, and some 2 miles from the Town centre. There are regular bus services, and taxi services from outside the airport terminal.
