What promises to be an unforgettable rugby match is set to close this year’s series of Autumn Internationals at the BT Murrayfield Stadium, and Edinburgh’s acclaimed tram system offers a convenient way to travel to and from the venue.
As well as the usual seven-minute service throughout the day, Edinburgh Trams is planning to boost service frequency to three minutes before and after Scotland face Argentina at 3:15pm on Saturday, November 19.
What’s more, rugby fans can avoid the hassle and expense of finding a parking spot in the city centre by leaving their car at Ingliston Park & Ride, which has more than a thousand free parking spaces, before heading to the stadium by tram.
As well as offering unrivalled convenience, the tram also offers great value for money and those heading to one of Scotland’s most iconic sports venues can pre-purchase their tram rugby tickets from edinburghticket.com.
Edinburgh Trams’ Managing Director Lea Harrison commented:
“This year’s international rugby season has seen Scotland entertain some of the top teams from the southern hemisphere in Edinburgh, and we’re delighted to have helped fans to make the most of these special fixtures by delivering a premium, customer-focussed transport service to and from the ground.
“Our new rugby ticket options have proved really popular for the first three Autumn Internationals, with fans loving the added convenience of paying for their ticket before they travel!’
Groups travelling together to the game can also take advantage of the operator’s popular Family Day Tripper Ticket, also available from edinburghticket.com, which offers unlimited travel from any stop between Edinburgh Airport and St Andrew Square.
This Saturday Scotland will be looking to avenge a series defeat in Argentina earlier this year and are hoping to end the run of autumn fixtures on a high after victory against Fiji, and narrow defeats in thrilling matches against Australia and the mighty All Blacks.
