Rugby fans heading for this year’s Autumn Internationals can be sure of swift and convenient travel to one of Scotland’s most iconic sports venues thanks to Edinburgh’s expanding tram network.
On Saturday, November 5, Edinburgh Trams is planning to boost its services to every three minutes before and after the eagerly anticipated clash between Scotland and the mighty Fijians.
The nearest tram stop is just a short walk from BT Murrayfield Stadium, so fans can avoid congestion in the city centre by leaving their cars at Ingliston Park & Ride, which offers free parking throughout the day, before completing their journey by tram.
The tram operator’s Managing Director, Lea Harrison, commented:
As thousands of people flock to Edinburgh to enjoy Scotland’s most acclaimed rugby season, we’re committed to making it as easy as possible for everyone travelling to and from the stadium on match days.
With a fantastic array of rugby teams from all over the world, this series of matches promises a real treat for rugby fans, and we want to help ensure they don’t miss any of the action!
Travelling by tram offers excellent value for money, and anyone going to the match can pre-purchase tram rugby tickets from edinburghticket.com.
Families travelling together can also take advantage of another special ticket deal that offers unlimited travel from any stop between Ingliston Park & Ride and St Andrew Square for up to two adults and three children. The Family Day tripper ticket costs just £7.50 and further details can be found here.
Scotland and Fiji have contested a total of eight rugby test matches since their first meeting in 1989, and further information about this year’s international fixtures can be found here.
