    Free buses from Brookvale & return?

    Who used them on Friday? … How patronised were they on Friday going over ?? & returning??

    As being the highest Rank team for the "Manly vs Bulldogs" NRL Semi, I assume the NRL should still offer this service again for this Saturday?

    Being a Saturday, no kids sport on and with the start of the school holidays, you think more families can use this service and more people all round (with no Friday end of work difficulties getting there for the majority).

    But if the service was not greatly used on Friday, I hope the NRL keeps this commitment up as they have in other Week 2 of the Semi’s (providing this service to Allianz Stadium).

    Maybe they should just run a mini bus, or even a station wagon.

    That’s good to hear. If people want the buses they need to ask again! The NRL won’t automatically give it unless there is a push & demand again. Tweeting >> @michaeljnrl is the best person …..

    The NRL have said yes the buses are being organised again for Saturday night.

    People should be chasing up the Manly Club as the buses should be announced on the Tuesday (being today)? I assume they are FREE?

    Transport Plans for Saturday's Semi Finals Clash

    NRL fans attending Saturday’s Semi Final between the Sea Eagles and Bulldogs will be able to use their tickets to travel on Sydney trains to Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.

    The service will extend as far as Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst and Dungog stations.

    And, to make it even easier to attend the match, both clubs have announced special transport arrangements for fans.

    Manly fans with pre-purchased tickets will be able to catch a dedicated bus from Manly Leagues Club straight to the ground on Saturday evening. Return services will commence straight after the match.

    The Bulldogs are putting on a dedicated train service for their supporters. Ticket-holders can jump on the train departing Belmore at 5:15pm stopping at Campsie, Canterbury, Sydenham and Central. A paid shuttle service will run from Central Station to Moore Park


    [hr]
    Brookie Buses:
    No pre purchase tickets were needed. The Supervisor specifically said that he didn't need to see tickets, just hurry and get on :)
