    Got my tickets for Friday (woohoo!) but they say "public transport included". Wonder what that means? Getting from the Northern Beaches to Allianz is one thing but getting to Homebush by public transport is a nightmare...and on a Friday night. Would they dare provide us with Special Event Buses and make it a little bit easier?

    You would hope the special event buses 1A Warriewood via Dee Why and 1B Warriewood via Mona Vale must surely operate for this Friday at the very least for the Northern Beaches??

    They normally do the whole Special Events buses network to Homebush/ANZ Stadium when they anticipate a crowd in excess of 50,000.

    It would be good if they announced something in the next 24 hours on the public transport plan for Friday (1A & 1B bus routes as a minimum?)?

    Here are the bus routes / special events to Olympic Park:

    They had special event buses on for Souths/Melb and Dogs/Knights in Week 1 of the finals so expect that to be announced hopefully soon.

    Can't find any mention of Special Event buses on 131500.com.au as yet. Makes sense for them to be running, infact I presumed they would be

    I have a mate who works for STA, and he is certain they will be running 1A and 1B buses on Friday, likely starting around 4pm.

    Typical NRL to not have it sorted out yet and let all the fans know about the transport arrangements for the game. The guys running the NRL are like a bunch of keystone cops.

    Even though it hasn't been announced yet, the special event bus timetables have gone up on 131500.

    For 1A and 1B, these are the links - http://www.131500.com.au/plan-your-trip/timetables/@@details?mode=-1&line=nsw%3A96H01%3A+%3AH%3Asj2&itd_itdDate=20130927&accessible=-1 & http://www.131500.com.au/plan-your-trip/timetables/@@details?mode=-1&line=nsw%3A96H11%3A+%3AH%3Asj2&itd_itdDate=20130927&accessible=-1

    If you're like me and don't live anywhere near Manly, go to www.131500.com.au, scroll down to bus timetables, change the day to Fri 27 Sep and put in the number of your bus.

    Sad that out north west there is only 3 buses on each route. Grand final day in 2008 and 2011, those buses were full of Manly supporters. We are everywhere!

    Poor effort by the STA running only 5 1A route buses, and the last one gets there only 5 mins before kick off (if it runs on time). Even the first one is only an hour before kick off.

    Agree extremely poor effort by STA.

    I wonder if the club can ask for a few more buses starting from 4.00 pm?

    I do not get it at all from the STA
    It is school holidays so there should be more buses available

    Why only 5 ( 1A) from the beaches- every event I have gone to out at ANZ with major event transport has had buses coming every 5 -10 minutes. They know a large proportion of the fans are going to be using this route.

    With that amount of buses coming from the beaches I see people missing out on transport

    Larissa please try and get more buses on these routes I cannot for the life of me understand why the STA has done it the way it has. They say on there website additional services for 1A and 1B will run - well hope they are.

    I think the NRL has to pay the State government for the special event buses.

    Maybe how much (little?) $ is coming from the NRL is why there are so few extra buses listed for Friday so far across all of Sydney.

    http://www.131500.com.au/ has crashed - must be all the Manly Supporters checking the timetable :)

    The 1A and 1B, usually have a Bus Superintendent at the main DY and Warriewood stops, who calls for more buses should they be needed.

    Coming home is always guaranteed, as they don't want anyone left there to cause trouble.:cool:

    3 more sleeps :)

    That makes sense
    Shows how much the NRL want us to be there. If this was souths verses tigers parra or bulldogs they would have thrown the money in
    Thanks for the clarification

    The Swans, Socceroos and Wallabies games at ANZ have the special events transport. The NRL does it for Origin and the grand final, but any other finals game is no certainty.

    I don't think the NRL do a very good job at finals time. They seem stuck to thinking all fans of a club must live in that club's suburbs & not anywhere else. It isn't 1970 anymore NRL!!!!!!!!

    The NRL also don't seem to try to get NRL fans from the other Sydney clubs not playing to go to finals games in Sydney.

    There are millions of NRL fans in Sydney but we can't fill a 80K stadium for a final because the NRL is just trying to get Souths and Manly fans there (not that they are doing a good job at that either).

    Thanks Larissa

    Even one at 4.00 pm and another at 4.30 pm would be great for people who want to go to the game a bit earlier.
