Rugby fans heading for the launch of this year’s Autumn Internationals needn’t worry about travelling to and from BT Murrayfield Stadium thanks to Edinburgh’s acclaimed tram system.

As well as running trams from every seven minutes throughout the day, Edinburgh Trams will boost its service frequency to every three minutes before and after Scotland face Australia at 17:30 on Saturday, October 29.

The operator’s Managing Director Lea Harrison commented:

Over the next few weeks, people will be thrilled to see one of the most exciting and dramatic annual competitions in world rugby, and we want to make it as easy as possible to access the stadium that’s right next to the tram stop.

Surely, roads around the city will be extremely busy, but those driving from beyond Edinburgh can avoid the hassle of finding a parking spot in the city centre by leaving their cars at Ingliston Park & Ride before completing their journey by tram.

For further convenience, the operator has introduced even more value-for-money deals to its wide range of ticket offers, including Rugby Return Tickets for adults and children, and they can be pre-purchased here.

We look forward to welcoming fans onboard and we hope they experience the best that Edinburgh and its rugby season have to offer, Lea added.

Scotland and Australia already competed for the Hopetoun Cup following its creation in 1998, and more details on the Autumn Internationals can be found here.
