Event buses to ANZ this Friday ???

I’m guessing the answer is ‘no’ but will there be event buses to Homebush for Friday’s game ?

Getting to the game otherwise is going to be a nightmare. Normal Friday night traffic and 50,000+ supporters is going to create quite a logjam.

They roll out the buses for smaller crowds at every Swans game.

I’m hoping so. Anz is hard to get to if the buses are not running and the train takes forever from where live

Checked on public transport info site and not mentioned as an upcoming event.

That’s pretty piss poor from the nrl if they’re not running especially seeing as they choose not to play the game at sfs where pretty much everyone can catch a train

I agree it is P poor but I dont get your point….if you can get a train to central/sfs OK then why cant you get one to homebush bay?

if you live in the sydney area then it cant be that hard to get to olympic park railway station. its basically in the middle of the sydney area

I work for the buses and YES the special event buses are operating. The catch is that this game is not an integrated ticket event so you have to pay for transport

That is what lets down ANZ. Every game at Suncorp Stadium the ticket includes transport to the match (it may have change since I left but I don’t think it has). should be the same for ANZ, especially for games they think will get 40,000 plus.

Obviously u can but I meant coz all trains go directly to central whereas people will have to catch 2 or 3 trains to get to homebush. Take north shore line for example, rather than catching one train to central I’d have to go central or Hornsby, strathfield, then Olympic park. It’s just more of a pain in the bum

Just announced today - This is an intergrated ticket event ALL Public Transport will be free with match ticket

To assist fans travelling to the match on Friday night, all tickets will include entry and travel on public transport to and from the game on CityRail, Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Buses, regular Sydney Buses, Liverpool to Parramatta T-way Buses and Sydney Ferries

LOOKS LIKE A RECORD CROWD…


Already more than 30,000 supporters have snapped up tickets for Friday night’s match, with ANZ Stadium lower bowl seating to be split between Wests Tigers and Dragons fans to showcase the colour and passion of the rival teams.
