Getting to the Game:
All ticketed memberships and pre-purchased tickets include integrated Major Event transport: entry and return travel on Sydney Trains, Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Bus Services, regular Sydney Buses (STA), Sydney Ferries services and Light Rail services.
Note, these major event bus services replace the “Eels Express” charter buses that the Eels will have in place for all other games at ANZ Stadium during 2017. Major event buses do, however, run along the same routes so ticket holders will receive the same service.
With the Royal Easter Show in full swing next door, all fans who have not pre-booked parking should not drive and instead take advantage of the additional direct public transport services that are included in the game ticket.
With plenty of extra trains and Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Buses running regularly, it’s easy to get there and back by public transport.
Travel on public transport services is also included in your Eels Membership and Eels v Tigers tickets so leave the car at home and plan your trip by public transport ahead of time. For all the details on the extra services and transport options available, visit transportnsw.info
