The funsters at the Economic Development Directorate are expressing a preference for cars not to be driven to the PM’s XI:
If you’re going to the Prime Minsters XI V’s England match at Manuka on Tuesday, your best bet is to leave the car at home and catch an ACTION bus, and it won’t cost you a cent!
If you have a ticket to the match, then all you need to do is show your ticket or pass when you board an ACTION bus and you will travel for free both to and from the match.
Catch an ACTION bus from anywhere in Canberra to the Woden or City Bus Stations, and then jump on a free shuttle service that will take you straight to the ground.
From 12pm buses will leave every 30 minutes from platform 3 at the City Bus Station and from platform 10 at the Woden Bus Station.
After the match, the free shuttle services will operate from the eastern side of the oval and take passengers to the Gungahlin, Belconnen and Tuggeranong Bus Stations, as well as Woden and Civic.
These buses will leave 20 minutes after the match.
Catching the bus will save you the stress of finding a parking space and also from being fined should you park illegally.
If you are planning to drive then you need to plan ahead as significant road closures will be in place around Telopea Park.
Someone please tell Steve Dozspot he can’t park under the stands?
