With the mighty All Blacks in town, rugby fans are in for a real treat this weekend and they are being urged to avoid being stuck in traffic by taking the tram.

The sell-out fixture between Scotland and New Zealand promises to be the highlight of this year’s Autumn Internationals at BT Murrayfield Stadium, and Edinburgh Trams is boosting its service frequency before and after the match on November 13.

Trams will run from every three minutes to ensure fans miss none of the action and they can also benefit from a wide range of ticket deals, including value-for-money rugby tram tickets for adults and children, which can be purchased in advance from edinburghticket.com.

Edinburgh Trams’ Managing Director Lea Harrison commented:

As thousands of people flock to the city this weekend to witness this hotly anticipated clash between the Scots and the strong All Blacks, we want to ensure that fans enjoy the best possible match-day experience.

As well as saving money and the hassle of finding a parking spot in the city centre, by taking the tram they can avoid the inevitable congestion around the ground. Anyone travelling from beyond Edinburgh can leave their cars at Ingliston Park & Ride, which offers plenty of parking spaces, before enjoying a swift and convenient journey to the Murrayfield tram stop.

On Sunday Scotland will be looking to achieve a first win over the New Zealanders following a dramatic lose during the Autumn Internationals in 2017, and further details can be found here.
