Take The Tram to Scotland v Wales
Posted on Tuesday, 21st February 2017 at 09:37
Scotland’s Six Nations campaign continues with a home clash against Wales this Saturday (25 February), and fans can travel to the match with ease by using Edinburgh Trams.
The tram offers the best way to avoid congestion around the ground ahead of kick-off at 2.25pm, with frequent and direct services to the BT Murrayfield Stadium from locations such as Edinburgh Airport, the city centre and Ingliston Park & Ride.
Edinburgh Trams also offers interchanges with trains at its new Edinburgh Gateway stop in addition to Edinburgh Park Station, Haymarket and St Andrew Square (for Waverley).
Dean Anderson, Customer Experience Manager at Edinburgh Trams, explained:
“Trams to the first Six Nations game at Murrayfield this year were very popular and we expect to carry thousands of fans to the match on Saturday too.
“Traffic around the ground will likely be extremely busy, making the tram the ideal way to get to the heart of the action.
“With return tickets for journeys in the City Fare Zone costing just £3.20 for adults and £1.60 for children, the tram also provides excellent value for money whilst helping fans avoid the hassle of finding a parking space close to the stadium.”
For anyone travelling to the game from the airport, open ended return tickets are priced at £8.50 for adults and £4.50 for children, and all fans are reminded that they will need to buy their ticket from a tram stop ticket machine, or by using the Transport for Edinburgh App before boarding.
Dean added: “Customers are urged to have their tickets ready for inspection at the gateline, which will be in place at our dedicated Murrayfield Stadium tram stop.
With trams expected to be very busy with excited fans, they should also allow themselves a little extra time for travel ahead of the big kick-off at 2.25pm.”
The carriage of bikes will not be permitted on these event days.
