TAMS are letting the world know you don’t have to drive to the cricket on Wednesday:
Cricket fans attending the 2013 One Day International Commonwealth Bank Series on Wednesday 6 February 2013 are encouraged to catch a free ACTION bus to the match.
The match starts at 2.20 pm at Manuka Oval and will be the first time the Australian cricket team has played in Canberra. The team will take on the West Indies in front of a booked out crowd.
One Day International ticket holders are entitled to travel free on any ACTION service on Wednesday 6 February by simply showing the bus driver their ticket to the match.
Free chartered bus services will also operate every 30 minutes from the Woden Bus Station (platform 10) and the City Bus Station (platform 3) between 12 pm and 2 pm. Additionally, a Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets Loop, picking up at Nyrang Street, Canberra Avenue, Manuka Circle, Telopea Park, Wentworth Avenue and Mildura Street will depart every 20 minutes.
Park and Ride services are available at the bus stops on Commonwealth Avenue and the Kingston Foreshore. The carpark at the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets will be open to ticket holders from 11.30 am for a small donation to the Rotary Club of Canberra.
A return shuttle service will depart from Manuka Oval to all bus stations and the Fyshwick Markets at the completion of the game.
