Important travel advice

As stadiums reopen with limited capacities, fans are reminded that public transport also continues to operate at a reduced capacity to maintain physical distancing across the network.

Super Rugby fans travelling by public transport should allow plenty of additional travel time and plan ahead by checking real-time capacity indicators where available as you may need to wait for the next service with available physical distancing capacity.

Remember to practise physical distancing when on-board transport services and to look for the ‘green dots’ to find the safest places to sit or stand. Wearing a face mask while travelling on public transport is also strongly recommended. Additional measures and staff will be in place around key transport hubs to safely manage crowds arriving and leaving the game so be patient, practise physical distancing and follow the directions of staff on site.

Light rail services and shuttle buses run regularly between Central and Moore Park however due to reduced capacity, queues for services may be lengthy so please allow extra time.

Fans are encouraged to walk between Central and Moore Park via Devonshire St and the Albert ‘Tibby’ Cotter Walkway to minimise wait times for transport services.

If you’re driving to the game allow extra travel time as traffic may be heavier than usual on roads approaching the precinct.
