    Transport | How to get there?

    There is no parking on site, so we strongly advise you to use public transportation instead:

    Under/Overground: Canada Water Station (Jubilee line & Overground). Exit via Canada water rail station. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the venue. If you’re farther away,
    Bus Station: Please check TFL to plan your journey https://tfl.gov.uk/plan-a-journey/
    Cars: Driving is discouraged there is no parking on site.
    Taxis: Drop Off: There is a drop off point in the venue perimeter, please tell your taxi driver to follow the signature on Surrey Quays Road.

    Accommodation | Where to stay?

    If you’re not from London and plan to spend the night in the city, there aren’t many places to stay within walking distance from the venue, but you can opt for hotels that are close to the Underground (Jubilee) or Overground lines.

    Another valid option is resorting to AirBnB, as it will greatly expand your options.

    Our top tips
    • Bring a digital version of the ticket you received by email. No-one will be admitted without a valid ticket. 
    • Doors open at 2:30pm and close at 4:00pm. Late-comers will not be admitted, so be sure to plan your journey to arrive early.

    And for our female attendees, we will be taking your safety seriously. We are arranging private cab services to drop you back home, safely, after the launch event. You can enter in your drop location on our form. (You will receive a link to this form by the 28th of April, after you get your launch invite)

    Here are our pickup and drop off points in Bengaluru:

    Hey all, I have been observing your queries on the thread. Would like to clarify three major points here:
    1. One concern is that a number of you have missed the form link for shuttle services in Bengaluru.
      Earlier, on the community's request, we did manage to extend the date to sign up for the shuttle service. However, now we are unable to extend it any further because we are too close to the launch date to accommodate any more changes. So for those of you who have missed the form link - you will have to arrange for travel on your own.

    2. All who have got the launch invite must have got an email regarding the pick-up and drop off timings for our shuttle services. This email also includes timings and details for parking.
      Disclaimer: Only those who signed up for the shuttle services will be eligible for the shuttle services.

    3. After the launch event, the buses will begin to leave from the venue 10:30 PM onwards.
    Hope this clears things out. Thank you.

    Awesome work, @Crystal Z., @dsmonteiro and @Ruby G.

    I can only imagine how hard it must be to think, execute and coordinate all this. Kudos to all of you and @Joel Jacob eventually :p

    All the best for the different launch events, I'm sure they are going to be memorable.

    Does Carl even know OnePlus is going to launch a new device? :p

    "- What's that, Pete?
    - A OnePlus 7 Pro.
    - Love it boss, just like my MacBook.
    - Cool, we named it that so you don't forget the name.
    - You are aweso... uuuuhhhh, boss, boss, get over here, something is popping from the top of my device. Did I break it already?
    - That's the camera.
    - No boss, that's magic. I'll call you Pete Copperfield from now on.
    - Oh Carl go see if it's snowing in Sweden.
