Extra trams are being lined up to help concertgoers to make the most of two high-profile concerts at BT Murrayfield at the weekend.
The operator of Edinburgh’s growing tramway is planning to offer easy access to the stadium by boosting its service frequency to every three minutes before Harry Styles takes to the stage on Friday and Saturday. Additional trams will also be in operation after the show.
To save a few pounds, which they could then use to spend on merchandise, fans can also take advantage of some great ticket offers. These include a ‘Day Tripper’ deal which allows unlimited tram journeys between Ingliston Park & Ride and St Andrew Square, for up to two adults and three children from just £8.
For added convenience, it can be purchased ahead of the concerts, along with other value-for-money tickets, and further details can be found here.
Lea Harrison, the operator’s Managing Director commented:
We’re thrilled to be able to provide a hassle-free option for those travelling to and from BT Murrayfield to enjoy what promises to be an unforgettable experience.
Naturally, roads across the city will be extremely busy, but anyone driving from outside Edinburgh can park their cars at Ingliston Park & Ride, which has plenty of spaces available, before taking the tram for the last leg of their journey.
To ensure everyone can get to their home or accommodation safely, trams will continue to serve all stops until crowds have dispersed after the concert. Likewise, the event organisers have urged fans to have their concert tickets downloaded onto a smart device or printed out prior to arriving at BT Murrayfield Stadium.
