TransLink will run extra services to help get footy fans to and from Suncorp Stadium safely as the Queensland Maroons try to keep the State of Origin series alive on Sunday.

Dedicated shuttle buses and additional trains will run before and after the match, in which Queensland will attempt to bounce back from a 50-6 defeat in Game One in Townsville.

Public transport is the best way to get to the game and travel will be free for ticketholders from midday until the last service on Queensland Rail City Network trains (excluding Airtrain), Brisbane City Council buses and special event shuttle services.

Head of TransLink Sally Stannard said more than 100 additional buses would be used to run regular shuttle services to and from the stadium.

Queensland Rail will also run 17 additional post-match services to various locations across South East Queensland.

Ms Stannard encouraged footy fans using public transport to follow TransLink's COVID-Safe Public Transport Plan while travelling.

"We know Queenslanders are extremely passionate about State of Origin and we want them to have a memorable experience on Sunday night," she said.

"We're asking patrons to plan their journey, considering travelling earlier to avoid the last-minute rush and staying home if they are unwell.

"In line with health advice, we also encourage public transport users to carry a face mask with them and wear it if social distancing is not possible."

Shuttle buses will run at regular intervals from the Brisbane CBD, Chermside, Carindale, Eight Mile Plains and The Gap to Suncorp Stadium from two hours before kick-off, with return shuttles to run for approximately one hour after the game.

Ms Stannard said the best way for fans to plan their travel to the game was to head online to translink.com.au or call 13 12 30.
